Social Development is as Important as Physical Development at The Little Gym


Here at The Little Gym we recently asked for reviews from parents who have visited the gym and what really stood out was how much our members value the classes with regard to their child's social development, and how we provide opportunities for children to interact and build relationships with others in a supportive environment. When a child becomes confident in their physical abilities and social interaction in class, this confidence carries over in to their daily lives outside of The Little Gym as they grow up!


Here are some top tips on encouraging your child's social development!


  • Love your child and show your affection for them.
  • Encourage your child to try new things.
  • Give your child opportunities to play with other children their age.
  • Show your feelings.
  • Establish daily routines.
  • Acknowledge your child's feelings.

Our current learning unit is all about developing social skills and working as a team. Positive social skills can be learned and improved upon throughout childhood. Programs at The Little Gym help children grow and develop social skills in a fun, nurturing environment that provides opportunities for learning. Games are used to enhance social development and the non-competitive nature of these encourages children to play with each other rather than compete against each other. Children learn to become more considerate towards each other, more aware of their feelings and the feelings of others, and more willing to co-operate and support one another.


Children love to have friends in class, whether these are friends they have made here, or friends from outside of The Little Gym! So, May is our Bring a Friend Month and you should now have your very sought after Bring A Friend Invitations which are available for our wonderful members; you!


Here’s what you need to do…


Step 1: With your little one, pick a friend who would love to experience a TLG class.


Step 2: On the invite, fill in the details of your regular class, day, time; this will be the class your friend is invited to join.


Step 3: Make your friend very happy and hand them the invite. They get to join you for 1 class during the month of May


Step 4: Have your friend give us a call to book in for the class written on the invite


Step 5: Meet them at The Little Gym and have Serious Fun!


Here comes the fun part…


If your friend loves it as much as your little one, they have until the end of May to book in and receive a 10% discount on the term fees. Your little one and their friend will also both receive a free TLG T-Shirt!


Don’t forget


If both you and your friend are unable to make your regular class, you’re still able to switch to a different day you’re both able to attend. Please check with one of the team before handing out the invite, just to make sure there’s space for you both.


We can't wait to welcome our members and their friends to join us during the month of May for some Serious Fun!
