Left to their own devices, children will chew through dry wall, eat a four-course meal of crayons, and construct complex chromosome models using Legos. Keep kids healthily occupied and engaged with today’s Groupon: for $30, kids ages 4 months to 3 years get three parent/child classes at The Little Gym of McAllen in McAllen (a $75 value).
With more than 30 years of kid-entertaining experience, The Little Gym of McAllen provides a safe and fun locale where kids can stay active in a nurturing and non-competitive environment. Parent/child classes are divided into four anthropomorphic age groups to form five classes, each of which is offered several times a week. These classes are ideal for developing youngsters, their accompanying parents, and imaginary friends that leave the freezer door open when left at home. A bevy of professionally-developed and age-appropriate gymnastics, early socialization, and cognitive exercises will keep the indefatigable energy motors of little tikes revving, while also boosting listening skills, attention spans, and confidence.
The Little Gym
In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes longed for a children's gym that prioritized personal growth over competition. Unveiled at a time when physical-education classes pushed students to focus almost exclusively on winning, Robin's program was swiftly adopted and is now used in more than 300 Little Gyms worldwide. Robin still pens original music to accompany lessons, which engage whippersnappers 4 months old–12 years old with gymnastics, dance, karate, and parent and child activities.
Each of The Little Gym's classes introduces simple movements that sharpen motor skills and set brains whirring, allowing kids to progress at their own pace until they can finally build a computer out of macaroni and glitter. Staff members strive to build a base for lifelong social skills and self-assurance with each exercise, including activities rooted purely in fun, such as summer camps or birthday parties, which helped The Little Gym to earn title of #1 Birthday Chain in Parents magazine.
