The Little Gym franchise is based upon the simple belief that motor skill development, made fun, builds confidence that leads to a lifetime of success. The Little Gym is a non-competitive, curriculum based gymnastics program offering classes year-round for children ages 4 months to 12 years old. The Little Gymís staff is trained to deliver individualized, highly motivational physical, mental and social development in a non-threatening, safe, nurturing environment. Children increase strength, flexibility, balance, rhythm and motor skills. The Little Gym classes also enhance intellectual development such as listening skills, attention spans, problem solving skills and following directions. Perhaps most important of all, The Little Gym program teaches children to love themselves as they are, that it is okay to make mistakes and that we should always try to do our best. Each skill learned at the Little Gym is another opportunity for a child to be praised for his or her effort as well as for the successful completion of progressive skills. Not every child can be a star athlete. First place, second place and third place typically means that someone comes in last place. At The Little Gym every child succeeds because every child is asked to do the best he or she can do. Every child can and will succeed because this expectation is applied consistently. Children are encouraged to attempt new challenges at their own pace so they can experience the thrill of victory without the defeats. For children who are initially hesitant to take on new challenges, the successes they experience at The Little Gym increase self confidence and thereby enable them to take on new challenges which would have been previously overwhelming. By making exercise fun, children are dramatically more likely to make exercise part of their lifestyle throughout their lives. Each class includes music, gross motor development and lots of social interaction, which builds healthy minds and bodies. In addition to gymnastics, karatenastics, sports skills programs and summer/holiday camps, The Little Gym has private birthday parties and parentís survival nights (Saturday evenings). Dance and Cheerleading programs are also available at select locations. Call The Little Gym nearest you for more information and to schedule your child's trial class.
