About The Little Gym



With more than 300 locations across the globe, The Little Gym is the world’s premier experiential learning and physical development center for children ages four months through 12 years. For over 35 years, our trained instructors have nurtured happy, confident kids through a range of programs including Parent/Child classes, Pre-K and Grade School Gymnastics, Sports Skills Development, Dance, and Karate.

In all of The Little Gym programs, physical activity is a conduit for learning. The Little Gym curriculum uses a “Three-Dimensional Learning” approach to promote a well-rounded learning experience. The three dimensions are billed as “Get Moving!” for physical development; “Brain Boost!” for learning and problem-solving development; and “Citizen Kid!” for leadership and social development. In each class, progressively structured lesson plans and a positive learning environment create opportunities for children to try new things, develop their skills, and build self-confidence.

In addition to the Core Season of classes, The Little Gym also offers award winning Awesome Birthday Bash parties, Parents’ Survival Nights, and seasonal Camps.

At The Little Gym, Owners measure ROI not only in terms of the financial rewards that come from running a successful business, but also by the hundreds of smiling faces they see every day. If working with children in a dynamic and inspiring way is something that’s important to you, then this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for.
