HI! There's Gymboree in Trinoma. I enrolled my 2yo baby girl there for a 12-week program, which we divided into three themes - Play and Learn (recommended for first timers in Gymboree, or for those who had never gone into play schools), Music (learning through various dancing and singing activities, similar to those we see in learning videos like brainy baby), and Learning Lab (classroom-based learning activity, ready-ing your child for for academic activities thereafter).
The sessions can be 1x/week, or 2x, up to 3x/week. We chose the once a week schedule so the baby won't be shocked with the change of lifestyle. Good thing, she's already very familiar with Gymboree as that's the only play area we brought her to since she was barely 1 year old (safest!)
For the once-a-week schedule, we paid around 13k for the 12 sessions, including the membership fee which you have to pay (membership can be used up to 4 yrs old, with free gameplay coupons, and entitles your kid for discounted rates for playtime and event fees).
It's been great because it helped my baby to learn how to interact with other babies (they were 4 in their class), follow instructions of the teachers, and learned how to be independent (there are several teacher aides around). It's a good pre-nursery program for your baby so when she enters nursery, she won't get perplexed with the sudden change of her lifestyle. :-)
