What You'll Get
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 $54, a youngster gets to take four consecutive weekly classes at The Little Gym in Greensboro (a $108 value). Classes are considered consecutive if they take place on the same day and at the same time three weeks in a row.
With more than 30 years of kid-entertaining experience, The Little Gym provides a safe and noncompetitive environment wherein 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. The program features diverse activities in gymnastics, dance, sports, and parent-child yodeling, for mountain-echoing communication more effective than a squeal. Kids can enjoy a course for toddlers—who can participate with a parent—through grade schoolers, with programs in gymnastics catered 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. Youngsters looking for new challenges can investigate karate, sports-skills, cheerleading, and dance courses. Check the complete class schedule to confirm times.
About 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 aged 4 months to 12 years 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.
