Because they are only young once!

You can see it in their eyes the first time they run into your arms after class. The new found look of glorious, sparkling confidence. Confidence that will build a foundation to succeed in whatever they may try today, and for the rest of their lives. For over 25 years, The Little Gym® has provided that foundation in our non-competitive motor skill development programs, such as gymnastics, sports skills and karate, all taught in a fun, safe and nurturing environment. We encourage children to develop at their own pace, building the self-esteem they need for fulfilling and successful lives.

Our Programs

Motor Skill Development made Fun

As you strive to give your children the best foundation for success, The Little Gym® is there to help you along the way. Our professionally developed, non-competitive curriculum has been designed to build motor skills while having fun, and simultaneously fostering enhanced emotional, intellectual and social skills. Our programs include movement, music, gymnastics, sports, exercise, games, listening and cooperation. Each child receives individual attention and progresses at their own pace in a non-threatening, warm and nurturing environment. Trained instructors create an atmosphere where positive experiences are the norm and feedback is given to every child and parent. For over 25 years, parents have relied on The Little Gym® to help their kids build the skills and confidence that will enhance every aspect of their lives.

Builds Confidence that Leads to a Lifetime of Success

The Little Gym's unique curriculum offers your child a multitude of life enhancing benefits and will prepare them for a lifetime of success. While your child is building motor skills, they will also show improvement in social and intellectual skills. Your child will increase flexibility, balance and rhythm, and consequently improve self-esteem, and confidence. Listening skills, attention span and the ability to follow directions will improve. Finally, your child will become more confident, more willing to take risks, and challenge themselves in ways they never have before.

The success of The Little Gym® programs are a direct reflection of founder Robin Wes' pioneering spirit and genuine love for children. Robin opened the first The Little Gym® in 1976; his concept was revolutionary. He created a program that would not only help children develop physically, but also intellectually, emotionally and socially. Robin's program was strictly non-competitive, focusing on creating fun, positive experiences. The idea was to give children the confidence they needed for a lifetime of success.

Today's curriculum, still based on our founding mission, continues to be refined through the collective wisdom of the entire The Little Gym® family. By integrating feedback from a dynamic group with diverse backgrounds, The Little Gym® has set the standards for progressive motor skills development. The Little Gym's long, successful history and proactive commitment to improve, allows parents to feel assured that they are giving their children the very best foundation for life.

The Little Gym® has now expanded to over 100 franchises internationally, enabling us to make a difference in the lives of thousands and thousands of children.

Developmental Gymnastics is the heart of The Little Gym® motor skill development program. It helps children ages 4 months through 12 years build physical, mental, emotional and social skills that will lead to a lifetime of success. Kids have a great time progressing through friendly and non-competitive classes designed to provide increased skill development as they mature. As always, The Little Gym® classes allow kids to have fun while focusing on achievement at their own pace.

Developmental Gymnastics is divided into three primary categories, beginning with parent/child classes for infants and toddlers; pre-k level classes for kids ages 3 through kindergarten, and progressing into increasingly advanced gymnastics for grade school-level children. Our professionally trained instructors are sensitive to children's individual abilities and personalities as they mature, and can help guide you and your child to the most appropriate level. Kids can enter the program at any age and begin building the skills and self-esteem that will help them be successful now, and in the future.
