Left to their own devices, children will chew through drywall, 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 $39, a youngster gets one month of unlimited classes and an annual-membership fee at The Little Gym of Pittsburgh-South Hills in McMurray (a $122 value). This Groupon is valid for one child only.
With more than 35 years of kid-entertaining experience, The Little Gym provides a safe and noncompetitive environment in which wee ones and maturing moppets can exercise their brains and bodies. Visiting youngsters glean social, intellectual, and emotional skills from the facility's professionally developed parent/child program, which features diverse activities in gymnastics, dance, sports, and parent-child yodeling for mountain-echoing communication more effective than a squeal. Kids can enjoy programs in kids’ and youth gymnastics, sports skills, and karate that cater to differing ages, levels of muscle development, and hatred of vegetables. Each session's hands-on activities keep the indefatigable energy motors of little tikes revving, facilitate bonding, and boost listening skills, attention spans, and confidence. Classes convene in the morning, afternoon, and evening as part of The Little Gym’s six-day schedule and sensitivity to morning people, midday enthusiasts, and vampires.
