So much to choose from

TLG_BackHandspringGirl (1)_copy

A new phase has started in your child’s life! They are turning 6 and a whole world of new possibilities opens up for them and you. The offer of sports activities is more varied and can at times be overwhelming. What will be the best choice for you and your child?

 

Maybe you are very fond of dance or rugby and you would love to see your child enjoy these sports as you have done during your youth. Maybe the whole class is joining the ballet school and you child would like to join his friends?

 

Luckily your child has been working on a very strong foundation in their Giggle worms/ Good Friends class. They have grown stronger, more flexible and agile. They have learned to work together and be part of a team. Not that their improved physical abilities have opened up a new world of possibilities their class at The Little Gym will change accordingly….

 

Our Hot Shots and Flips classes are based on the official USA curriculum; it is all about learning cartwheel, handstand and back hand spring! The primary focus of a Hot Shots / Flips class is learning gymnastics skills. The groups will be divided based on individual level and specifically for those children that are ready for an even bigger gymnastic challenge, we have the Twisters class.

 

We challenge the children at their own level in a non competitive-environment where it is more important to try your best than be the best. Working with small groups and a ratio of one teacher to 7 children, every child will receive ample individual feedback. The themes of the classes specifically suit this age group with a strong focus on working together and helping each other to succeed.

 

Please come see us at the front desk with any questions you might still have. We are ready to discuss the different options for you and your child.


When your child goes to school!

PreKJumping

How time flies! Your little one is already turning 4 and that means ‘school’. Your child might be ready for it, but are you too? Perhaps you would like to read a little bit more about what you can expect.

 

As a parent you might worry that your child’s first period at school is too tiring. They will start with 5 days, having to complete many different assignments while sitting still for a long time. In addition your child needs to get used to a new group dynamic in a classroom and having to share the attention of the teacher with 28 other children. No wonder this can be exhausting! Luckily your child has had the opportunity to prepare for this upcoming challenge in our Funny Bugs class. They have learned to follow instructions, to stay with a group and to build a trusting relationship with an instructor. Now that the expectations of your little pupil are changing, The Little Gym class will change as well.

 

The Giggle Worms / Good friends classes are specifically developed for children 4 years and older to support them during this important new phase in their life. We offer these classes after school and during the weekend.

 

After a day of sitting still, your child will be eager to go to a warm and nurturing environment that they already know, where they can burn energy and be themselves.

 

Every child is different and each will have their individual pace to get adjusted to their new schedule. This is not only a big change for your child, but also for you as a parent!

 

We are ready to help you to find a suitable solution for you and your child. Please come and see us at the front desk to discuss the different options that we have to offer.
