Owner

My 20-year-old self would be a bit shocked that I’m a The Little Gym owner! At the time, I was studying international business and art at University. Teaching children how to forward roll, somersault, listen or make friends wasn’t on my radar.

Until I met Alexander de Wit, owner of The Little Gym Europe, 15 years ago. He was looking for someone to open a gym in The Netherlands. My partner thought that it might be a perfect fit for me.

I wasn’t convinced. I wasn’t a teacher; I was an art historian. I had never taught children. The only link I had with The Little Gym was my background as a gymnast. Read more

Our Philosophy of

Three Dimensional Learning

 

At The Little Gym, our environment is fun, but our purpose is serious. That’s why we embrace a proprietary philosophy called Three-Dimensional Learning, in which physical activity is a conduit for nurturing your whole child. The Three-Dimensional Learning approach to skill development means that every class we offer fosters growth in three holistic dimensions—Brain Boost!, Get Moving! and Life Skills! Read on to see how each dimension of learning helps your child grow into a well-rounded, well-adjusted child.

40 years of

SERIOUS FUN

An innovative educator, musician and kinesiologist, Robin Wes envisioned a nurturing place where children could explore their physical development while also growing socially, emotionally and intellectually. He opened the first The Little Gym in 1976 in Bellevue, Washington and infused those early classes with the same positive, non-competitive spirit that characterises us today. Forty years later, children in more than 300 locations worldwide experience the Serious Fun of The Little Gym.
