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 to The Little Gym's five locations in San Jose, Milpitas, Sunnyvale, Morgan Hill, and Mountain View. Please consult each location's website for schedule information, and choose between the following options:
• For $30, children get four consecutive classes (up to a $95 value). Classes are considered consecutive if they take place on the same day of the week, at the same time, for four consecutive weeks.
• For $40, children get two three-hour summer-day-camp sessions (up to an $80 value). This option is not valid at the Mountain View location.
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 can glean social, intellectual, and emotional skills from the facility's professionally developed programs. Tots ages 4 months to 12 years enjoy a four-class foray into "three-dimensional learning" with a focus on physical strength and motor-skill development, knowledge and awareness, independence and socialization, and parent-child yodeling for mountaintop communication.
Alternately, parents can place their progeny into the temporary care of The Little Gym's fun and flexible kids' summer day camp. Open to tykes ages 3 to 8, the camp sessions engage developing minds with three hours of theme-based curriculum, physically active games, arts and crafts, and secret strategies to accurately pin a tail on even the most emotionally distant donkey.
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.
