about The Little Gym:
A room painted with brightly colored murals, filled with gymnastics equipment of all sorts, offers lots to do and plenty of room to run around. Instructors here are friendly and professional, and work at knowing children by name and at including them in the action.
Classes for younger children follow the same pattern every week, so kids know what to expect. The instructor leads songs and fun group activities and teaches basic gymnastics skills, and kids have time for free play and ball play.
Older children learn tumbling and apparatus skills, while gradeschoolers build on those skills in a non-competitive environment. Advanced gymnastics classes, by invitation, are also available for kids ages three to 12. Infants to three-year-olds attend with a caregiver, while kids over three attend on their own.
A sports skills class teaches kids ages three to eight the basics in soccer, baseball, basketball, and football, in combination with gymnastics. Classes are also available in karate (ages four-12) and dance (ages three-12).
Birthday parties: A 90-minute party, led by trained staff, includes gymnastics, games, music, set-up/clean-up, paper goods, invitations, and a t-shirt for the birthday child. Parties are held on Saturday afternoons and Sundays only.
Summer and holiday camps offer three hours of physical fitness and play, with arts, crafts, and special events for children ages three to eight.
