Starting School in September?

TLG_Facebook_Post_Bars-Girl_Instructor_Pre-School_800x800_copy

To stop or not to stop… that’s the big question facing the parents of children starting reception every September.

Should your child continue with their activities after school? The football, ballet or gymnastics that they love?  

 

The answer is YES!

 

Your child is going to get quite a big shock when they go to school. But not the one us concerned parents are expecting…. Far from being tired, when they start school they will suddenly stop moving for most of the day, and be asked to sit quietly for long stretches. 

 

Here’s the problem… 4 year olds aren’t designed to sit quietly. They are still in the developmental stage where their brain is telling them to move, to explore, to experience as much of the world around them as humanly possible. And that is because our little ones learn through moving.

 

The NHS recommends children aged 5 years and under should get at least 3 hours of exercise every day, including 60 minutes of vigorous exercise. But when they first start school, they will not get that exercise. And they need it to be better at school!  

 

According to OFSTED, Early Years settings are “not sufficiently physically challenging”, and “the more active a child is, the stronger their core is and the better able they are to do things asked of them at school. If practitioners do not encourage children to do this then they are not setting them up very well for the future.”  

 

That's because if you want your child to be a better sitter, a better listener, and better at concentrating, you need to get them moving. It’s the way to truly good listeners.

 

And here’s why…

 

Our vestibular system – our sixth sense – is responsible for helping us to sit still and listen, be alert, and concentrate. And it works in partnership with our seventh sense, pro-prioception. Now, if your child has a poorly developed vestibular sense and a challenged pro-prioceptive sense then they’re going to find school hard! They’ll be the child that fidgets, that can’t stop moving, that can’t focus, can’t be still and doesn’t hear what the teacher is saying. And the child that gets in trouble for all of those things. And no parent wants that for their child.

 

But when does all that critical development of the vestibular system and proprioception happen? Right now, just when they’re being told to go to school, sit still, and listen. At exactly the stage in their life when they need to get moving! All of that development happens BEFORE the age of SIX!

 

And guess what, they’re both developed solely through movement. If the vestibular and proprioceptive senses are developed through movement, and all that critical development happens before the age of 6 years, then how on earth can our little ones get what they need from Pre-School and Reception alone?

 

The Simple Answer -- They Need Movement After School!

 

Your school-age child needs to get moving for 3 hours a day and even with the best of intentions our education system just can’t provide them with that opportunity. Only modern, savvy parents that are passionate about their children’s development can.  

 

And not just any movement will do. To optimise their development, children need to take physical risks, regularly try a variety of new physical challenges for the first time, stretch their bodies in new directions, reach new heights, and problem solve.

 

When we were kids we climbed trees… and we have a responsibility as a adults to find a super fun modern-day equivalent for our increasingly ‘more sedentary than they are designed to be’ children.

 

And according to Gill Jane, Deputy Director of Early Years at OFSTED, there is a tension between physical activity and taking risks, and as a parent, balancing risk is a hard thing to do. OFSTED would like early years practitioners to challenge children and take such risks in order to make them more physically active.

 

Helping Your Children to Learn Through Movement and Safe Risks

 

Giving children this strong platform is exactly where The Little Gym comes into play. We know what 3, 4 and 5-year-old children need, and we get them moving and challenged in the right way to aid their development.


That’s why teachers, occupational therapists and paediatricians recommend us as an accompaniment to the early years of schooling – they understand what an important role we can play in supporting children’s development and schooling.  

 

And that’s what we all want – parents and teachers alike… to set every child up for success, help them to thrive, and make school as easy an experience for them as possible!

 

Don’t stop your children’s activities when they go to school. They won’t be too tired. They’ll need the outlet. And they need to keep moving. Penning them into a room for most of the day, stopping them from moving, and then removing the activities they love doesn’t do our beautiful children justice.

 

And just like us, they need to de-stress after a long day at school! Just like we need to de-stress after a long day at work. Why do you think adult gyms do such a roaring trade in the evening! School has the same effect on our children, let’s help them get that stress out of their system and sleep better at night.

Sports Day Should be Everyday!!

SS_Facebook_PreK_TurnsBack-BoyMat_4M-3Y_LOGO_800x800
This time of year, a lot of children around the UK will be having their sports day. A great, fun way to get children active. But here at The Little Gym Leeds we think every day should be sports day! Children are spending less and less time moving/playing/exercising and more time sitting. This makes us sad!
 

A recent study in Wales reported "With the exception of one indicator, everything is getting worse" in relation to childhood exercise and obesity.

 

Have a read of the study here https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-politics-44767440


At The Little Gym, our developmental gymnastics classes cover a range of loco-motor movements, rotations, jumps, leaps, climbing skills and so much more! These dynamic movements in a sensory rich environment is fundamental to the sensory system and developing the brain, so why not learn in our colourful, safe & nurturing gym!

Physical activity in toddlers and children helps towards brain health, advancing their thinking skills that most affect academic performance. Sitting down too much is negatively impacting children’s behaviour in schools. During exercise blood delivers oxygen and glucose to the brain, which it needs for heightened alertness and mental focus.


Our classes tap into each child's senses, stimulating their body and mind. 

 

If you are stuck for something to do this summer holidays why not book your little one into a class with us? We start at 4 months old and run until 12 years old.

We've listened to your suggestions and are changing the way we work.  From September onwards all members will be automatially enrolled into the full year of classes and subsequent years thereafter to ensure the class is secured for you.  You can, of course stop classes at any point we simply require a calendar months notice in writing.  We also offer an easy monthly payment option which may suit you better.  We hope that this will simplify the process and offer you additional flexibility.

 

The earlier you register your child, the easier it is for us to confirm a place in your preferred class; your early registration gives you the best choice of class times to suit your requirements. Please speak to your child’s instructor or any member of our team about the most suitable class for your child in the new year of classes as soon as possible.

 

Annual Membership must be valid and a renewal fee of £30 per family is automatically added where required, at the time of booking.

Members confirming their place at this time will of course be entitled to our Early Bird Offers and will remain on our discounted rates going forward. Class recommendations for moving up will be discussed throughout the year and children will be moved at a time that suits their own development.  We hope that this will allow for a smooth transition into new classes throughout the year.  The current semester comes to a close on 22nd July, we remind you that all make-up classes need to be taken before that date. Post GDPR, we have changed our Terms and conditions and would like to invite you to review these. If you have any questions, please contact any of us for assistance

Super Quest Camps - 3-8 Year Olds

 

Children from 3-8 years old can go on a Super Quest as a Superhero, Secret Agent, Pirate or Mighty Explorer and many more wonderful themes. We'll take your little one on a gymnastics and sports Super Quest full of exciting themed missions in the gym. Then they'll take a break from the running around for healthy snacks, arts and crafts, before heading back into the gym for their next mission.   Themed sessions that change every week stimulate physical and motor-skill development with games and gymnastics, all in the care of our qualified and dedicated team of instructors. Take a look at our themes week by week:

 

Week one - The Warrior Pack (23rd - 29th July)

 

Do you have what it takes? Test your ninja skills in this high impact experience! Obstacle courses, gymnastics, and physical exercises will transform you into a fierce (but fun!) warrior. Get ready to master challenges that build agility, strength, speed and develop good sportsmanship with a new pack of friends!

 

Week two - Midsummer Night’s Garden Party (30th July - 5th August)

 

Legend says that on certain nights, hidden in the Hum-Giggle Garden, a magical and mysterious Midsummer Night’s Garden Party takes place! If the Super Kids can search through Hum-Giggle Garden and find the party, they will take part in games and challenges performed in the dark! In the process, the Super Kids will be reminded of the importance of including fruits and vegetables in a healthy daily diet.

 

Week three - The Neat Ninja League (6th - 12th August)

 

The Super Kids will become Super Ninjas this week! Learning and using basic karate and martial arts skills to complete their quests, the Super Kids will be granted membership into the Neat Ninja League! Neat Ninja’s are very neat and responsible; they clean up their messes and they do their chores! As you might guess, we will have a fun focus on the importance of personal responsibility to round out the fun!

 

 

Week four - The Five Wonders of Foxhole Forest (13th - 19th August)

 

Deep in the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest, there is a secret enchanted place called Foxhole Forest. Here the Superkids will have to find the ‘5 wonders of Foxhole Forest’ which were hidden by the Ancient Fox Family thousands of years ago. The superkids will need to be super brave and super adventurous  for this one!

 

Week five - Superheroes! (20th - 26th August)

 

It’s a bird; it’s a plane; it’s SUPERMAN!!! This week the Superkids are going to be superheroes that can fly, spin webs and have x-ray vision! They will also learn all about everyday heroes that rescue people! The Superkids will activate their super powers for super fun!

 

Week six - X-treme Sports of ALL Sorts (27th August - 2nd September)

 

This week our superkids will experience a week of extreme sports adventures going fast or really HIGH, and having some flying, twisting and flipping fun! Whether it’s parkour, or surfing our Superkids will have crazy sports adventures like never before!

 

 

And for our gymnastics junkies aged between 5-12 years why not try...

 

Skill Thrill Camps - 5-12 Year Olds

 

Come on a super fun and confidence boosting Skill Thrill workshop to perfect handstands, cartwheels, vaulting, handsprings and more. Skill Thrill Camps are themed camps that also build in some seriously fun skill development! Not only do your children go on a fun mission in the gym, they also get to hone their gymnastics skills just in time to show them off at school again in September! Take a look at our skill-specific themes week by week...

 

Week one - Back Handspring Bonanza (23rd - 29th July)

 

This Skill Thrill Camp is perfect for those kids who are ready to learn the Back Handspring! It’s also great for those kids who have learned a Back Handspring – but are ready for more advanced Back Handspring variations, i.e. Round-Off, Back Handsprings; Round-Off Back Handspring-Back Handspring; and more! A three hour “Back Handspring Bonanza”! What could be more fun?

 

 

Week two - Front Handspring Festival (30th July - 5th August)

 

This Skill Thrill Camp is perfect for those kids who have learned their handstand – and are ready to move to the next step – a “Front Handspring”! This camp is also great for kids who can do this skill by themselves – but just need some repetition and practice to solidify their technique and confidence. This Front Handspring Festival will also be an “Upper Body Fitness Festival” of sorts – as handstands and front handsprings are a great way to exercise the muscles of the arms, shoulders, chest and back!

 

Week three - Vaulting Volcanoes  (6th - 12th August)

 

Vaulting is one of the most fun and exciting events in gymnastics! What other event allows you run AS FAST AS YOU CAN and LAUNCH into the AIR! The speed and height involved in vaulting skills also presents some interesting challenges – like body control and self-confidence! This camp will help your gymnast learn to “tap into” and apply their speed and power into their vaulting skills! Whether it’s learning a squat-on vault or perfecting a Front Handspring vault, this camp will get them “springing” to new heights!

 

Week four - Amazing Aerials  (13th - 19th August)

 

Is it possible to do a “no-handed cartwheel”? YES – this skill is called an “Aerial”! While advanced-level gymnasts may be perfecting their aerial or learning to link their aerial to other skills, beginning and intermediate gymnasts will have the opportunity to grow their cartwheels as they journey through the many skill progressions to learn the intricacies of this exciting skill. This Skill Thrill Camp may be just the thing for those kids who are “THAT CLOSE” to doing their aerial by themselves! This week may just do the trick!

 

Week five - Back Tuck Beach (20th - 26th August)

 

Yes – we’re going to be doing “Back Tucks”! Back Tucks (back flips) are not only a BLAST! – they are also easier to learn and perform than one might think. All it takes is some confidence-building, practice and repetition! And that’s just what this Skill Thrill Camp will provide. Your gymnast will have opportunities to learn the Back Tuck, and/or to perfect this skill and link the Back Tuck in a series of other tumbling skills, i.e. Round-Off, Back Handspring, Back Tuck!

 

 

Week six - Caribbean Cartwheels and Hawaiian Handstands  (27th August - 2nd September)

 

Cartwheels and Handstands are the “gateway skills” that will lead the beginning/intermediate level gymnast toward learning Round-Offs, Back Handsprings, Front Handsprings , and more! Because Cartwheels and Handstands are both “upside down” skills, they do wonders for building your child’s upper body and core strength, too! Learning and perfecting Cartwheels and Handstands are a “must” for young gymnasts! A “Caribbean/Hawaiian” side theme will add a fun tropical twist to the week!

 

NEW - WEDNESDAY AFTERNOONS - Dance Around the World (3-8 years)

 

This summer on a Wednesday afternoon we will be running some NEW Dance Camps! In a Little Gym dance camp, not only do the kids get creative with dance, but they also get to work on their gymnastics skills. Join us for an adventure around the globe and experience the colorful world of dance, music and self-expression! Each week we will introduce new dance styles through fun skill combinations, activities, and games that encourage an appreciation for dance! Improve balance, coordination and learn new skills as we dance to the beat of  these seriously fun new camps!

 

Week one: All About Africa!

 

Week two: Plies in Paris - Ballet theme!

 

Week three: Dance with me in NYC - learn some Hip-Hop moves!

 

Week four: Born to Bailar - Latin Theme!

 

Week five: TLG Cheer Team! - All about Teamwork!

 

Week six: A Worldly Star is Born - It’s Showtime!

 

For members our camps are £25 and £35 for non-members.

SERIOUS FUN

ExcitedBoy

 

At the Little Gym we have 3 simple rules for our classes and those are:

 

  1.  Be super super safe!

  2. Have lots and lots of fun.

  3. You don’t have to be the best you just have to try your best.

 


Studies have shown just how important our second rule can be in young people. Because children are specialising in sports younger and younger, more and more children are dropping out of these sports and the majority of them never pick up sports again. This is not good! 

 

Here at the Little Gym Leeds we are all about Serious Fun. We know just how important it is for children to find things fun and interesting. As soon as it’s no longer fun children are not interested.

 

Our environment is fun, but our purpose is serious. That’s why we embrace a proprietary philosophy called 3-Dimensional Learning, in which physical activity is our tool for nurturing your child as a whole. This approach to skill development means that in every class we teach, we offer growth in not just the physical sense,but we give them brain boosts and life skills. Having a 4 year old sit and listen to the teacher explain the class is a big deal. A 2 year old waiting their turn is a great life skill.

 

Gymnastics is a great sport for young people to get into as it has so many benefits. They don’t just learn how to do cartwheels and handstands but did you know that taking part in physical activity as a child significantly reduces the risk of obesity, heart disease and diabetes in adulthood.

 

Other benefits include:

General health: The habits children learn through playing and physical activity are often carried through to adulthood.
 

Social skills: Attending regular gymnastic classes teaches young people how to communicate with other young people, teamwork and how to engage with adults.
 

Commitment: Gymnastics requires concentration and commitment. Our 3 and 4 year olds get used to sitting and listening to a teacher talk; preparing them for school.
 

Strength: We develop strength, body awareness, body control and coordination, all of which will transfer over to any other sports children decide to do later on in life.
 

 

Check out this article on the effects of early sports specialisation

 

Why not come and see what all the fuss is about? Call us on 0113 3359915 or email us at leeds@thelittlegym.eu  and book in for a class today!

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

TLG_Facebook_Blog_Post_Hooray_Siblings_EN_copy

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!

Ofsted says settings are 'not physical enough'

SS_Facebook_PreK_BoyHanging_LOGO_800x800

At The Little Gym Leeds we are very aware of the importance of physical activity and risk taking at a young age.  We are therefore keen to share with you an interesting article we saw via Nursery World Magazine about how we need to encourage our children to take more risks!

 

OFSTED said ‘Settings are not physical enough’ and children are not taking ‘safe risks’.

 

Classes at The Little Gym specifically encourage risk taking in a safe environment as recommended in this article.  Parents and carers are naturally concerned with the safety and happiness of their child’s activity/experience.  This sometimes leads them to be primarily concerned with protecting children from any ‘negative’ experience (falling, failing) rather than encouraging children to take risks or try something difficult such as lean/swing for a bar that is out of reach.

 

The positive impact of trying something hard or scary and eventually succeeding is invaluable to mental health, as well as physical development.  Schools are reporting that 4 year olds are entering school without being able to sit still and this is due to a lack of physical development – core strength and hip flexing – movement activities, rather than any fidgety lack of concentration.

Welcome All New Mums & Dads!

TLG_Social_Media_Blog_Post_New_Born_MomBaby_460x460_EN

 

Welcoming a newborn into the world is a truly miraculous time.  It is exciting as well as challenging, it literally turns your world upside down (of course in the most positive way) and on top of that, there is not one but 1000s of manuals on what you are supposed to do!  It does not matter how many parenting books you have read, there is so much to learn and when it comes to the crunch much of this learning happens through trial and error. 

 

Nowadays, there is such a large range of activities and classes on offer, it is difficult to sift through the options and decide what is best for your baby in order to best support his or her development.  Studies indicate that movement feeds the brain and lays the foundations for learning.  It is important to encourage movement in the early months of baby's life to help them reach developmental milestones. Click here to find out more about the benefits of early movement.

 

The Little Gym Leeds offers classes for children from as young as 4 months.  The Bugs class (4-10mths) is a 45 minute long parent and child session which is designed to support babies overall development through the use of age appropriate developmental gymnastics.  Children are exposed to the rich multi-sensory environment.  This allows them to learn and helps them gain a better understanding of the world around them.  More importantly though, they explore the gym environment with their senses as well as their bodies.

 

Everyone learns through processing sensory inputs.  Our sensory system picks up information and generates an appropriate response/reaction.  You may know about the five most common senses; touch, smell, hearing, taste and sight.  But did you know about the other two hidden senses?  The sense of balance (the vestibular system) and proprioception (our sense of where our bodies are in space)?  Those two senses play an absolutely crucial role in our lives and without them, we would not be able to function.

 

You may well be wondering how we can develop these?  Through MOVEMENT and the key is starting in the early months of a baby's life.  This is when The Little Gym comes in, the skills Bugs do at The Little Gym, such as rotational activities on the floor, moving across inclined mats as well as the balancing beam, weight bearing skills on legs and arms and gripping/pulling with the arms all feed into the child's development.  Along with the sensory stimulation, children develop much needed strength which aids them greatly in reaching milestones.  These include rolling, sitting up, crawling and so on.

 

The lovely thing about the Bugs classes is that the learning is not only for the children but also for you, the parent.  Spending time in the gym with your child teaches you about different areas of child development and the theory behind why we do specific activities; you can practice skills learnt at the gym at home and gain confidence in how to support your baby safely and you will definitely enhance the bond between you and your child.  it is also a great chance to make friends and grab a coffee after class!!

 

Get in touch for more information by emailing leeds@thelittlegym.eu or calling us on 0113 3359915 or on facebook Our classes continue until 12 yrs of age.  Check out our full class details

European Franchisee of the Year

Franchise Award PhotoThe Little Gym Yorkshire named as European Franchisee of the Year

The team at The Little Gym are jumping for joy after learning they have been awarded an
international award. Owner Kate Henebury was named franchisee of the year by The Little Gym
Europe at their recent convention in Germany.

Kate opened The Little Gym Harrogate in 2010 and quickly became a firm favourite in the Harrogate
and district area for gymnastics classes, camps and parties. Through the years the Harrogate gym has
created a real sense of family as 100’s children pass through their doors each week. This success
helped Kate open The Little Gym Leeds in 2016.

As one of the fastest growing gyms in European history, The Little Gym Leeds is now fully established
and is seeing the same success as Harrogate. Through Kate’s meticulous attention to detail and
commitment to providing top class services for her members The Little Gym Leeds is now thriving
with over 500 children visiting the gym each week for regular classes.

The team’s at both The Little Gym Harrogate and Leeds strive to create a sense of community,
teaching classes weekly and seeing families grow over the years. The relationships and bonds made
with the children and teachers provide the safe nurturing space needed for a lifetime of success.
Kate’s plans are firmly set on opening The Little Gym York in 2018.

The Little Gym provides a fun environment with a serious purpose. Fostering growth in physical
development, listening, concentration and social skills like sharing and team work. The gyms will
receive additional equipment as part of the award. On a weekly basis The Little Gym welcomes over
1000 children through its doors in Yorkshire. With current plans underway to open a third site in
York, it is hoped this will increase to over 2000 in the next two years! Building confidence one jump
at time!

What's a Funny Bug?

SS_Facebook_PreK_TurnsBack-BoyMat_4M-3Y_LOGO_460x460We love our Funny Bugs at The Little Gym! 


A really special age and a wonderful developmental stage in a child's life, our 3-4 year olds.


At The Little Gym, this is the first age group where children will venture into the gym on their own without a parent. Our class sizes are up to 18 children with a minimum of 3 instructors, the perfect ratio to encourage learning, social awareness and cognitive development. During the class, these wonderful inquisitive little Funny Bugs will begin to make steps towards independence in the gym. 


Parents can either stay and watch with a cup of tea or head off for the hour and get some errands done! 


The instructors will begin the class by giving them a challenge or special theme. This will fuel their incredible imagination throughout the class. We know 3 year olds love stories, creativity and imagination and what better time to harness that! Our Funny Bugs will be led through a wonderful journey, not even realising they're learning throughout the hour! 


A 3 year old is still working out what their bodies are capable of, our instructors will give them ample opportunity for independent play, a fundamental part of the learning process. The chance to take what they've been shown or told and use that information in their own way. You'll often see children in the throws of an epic pirate adventure or helping to build a huge castle or working with a friend to feed animals in the forest! Whatever imagination is fuelling their class, you can guarantee their little bodies will be learning the basics of gymnastics at the very same time. 


Throughout the class, the instructors will be showing and telling the Funny Bugs new skills and activities to try on the equipment. From the beginning stages of a handstand or cartwheel, skills on the bar and beam and even vaulting. Each child will receive individual tuition based on their abilities and each teacher will give specific feedback to progress the skills when the Funny Bug is ready. 


We love this age group for the incredible amount of development happening each and every week. These brilliant little 3 year olds have so much potential; for learning, for creativity, for friendship but more importantly, to be a child! For them these classes are pure fun but for us we know there is so much more happening! 


If you would like more information about our brilliant Funny bugs classes, please don't hesitate to get in touch. We could talk all day about this age group but the best way for you is to come see/try a class in action! Take a peek at the schedule here to see which Funny Bugs will work best for you.

"Thank you to all the amazing team at The Little Gym Leeds, for giving Martha the BEST birthday party ever yesterday. She and her friends had the most wonderful time, non stop smiles and giggles, and Naomi and Dani had their attention from start to finish. It was brilliantly organised, and tailor made to include all of Martha's favourite activities from her classes. We all love this place, and the teachers, and cannot recommend the classes or parties highly enough. Thank You xxx" Martha's party (Just turned 6)

Mumbler Meet-Up!

TLG-9945On Monday 25th September we got to host the North Leeds and Wharfedale Mumbler meet-up.

32 lovely little ones under the age of 3 attended our two sessions and what fun they all had!

The team from North Leeds Mumbler head up by Anna Winter posted about the event; 2 sessions available, for children 4-18 months old or 18 -36 months old. The children came to experience a full TLG Leeds class and stayed afterwards for a tea and cake, what a lovely way to spend the morning. 

We had the fantastic Steph Simmons Photography come take some gorgeous photos around the class and some portraits too! Take a look at her website if you're interested in some snaps of your family. 

If you would like to book in for the next Mumbler Meet-Up, be sure to follow their Facebook pages (North Leeds Mumbler Facebook and Wharfedale Facebook). They have tonnes of local events and information for local families.

We have lots coming up over the next few months so be sure to keep in touch! 

Little Bugs to Big Birds

SS_Facebook_PC_LegUpBoys_4M-3Y_LOGO_800x800_ENOur youngest age groups at The Little Gym are developing so quickly. As teachers we notice these changes weekly; whether it’s as subtle as a 6 month old growing into those gorgeous cheeks or a confident 14 month old taking their first few steps, we love it! 

Each week for our Bugs (4-10 months) and Birds (10-18 months) classes, you’re along for the ride. You get to see how a developing, active child approaches new challenges, activities, skills and social situations throughout the 45 minutes and over the term. More importantly, you get to see how these new opportunities shape and impact their little lives outside of The Little Gym. 

If you've yet to experience a class at The Little Gym we'd love to have you come along and try us out! 
If you're not sure about what on earth a 4 month old can do at a class, don't worry, we get that question a lot! We could write a book on all the wonderful benefits of a Bugs or Birds class, instead we think you should pop along to one of our classes and experience it for yourself.

camp 1There's so much going on this summer and it's already begun! Don't miss out on camps and classes over the holidays, call us to book in or email to enquire. See you soon for Serious Summer Fun!

SUPER KIDS QUEST CAMP. 3-8 YEARS

With both morning and afternoon camps to choose from, Super Kids can join us on a specially planned quest. Children will be sailing Green Beards Pirate Ship and searching for clues to complete the quest in Foxhole Forest. We provide a snack and children will be placed into age appropriate groups for the time in the gym when necessary. Check the schedule here

SKILL THRILL CAMP. 5-12 YEARS
Does your child dream of cartwheeling? How about cartwheeling with one hand or no hands? What about a handstand or a back handspring? We will use games, break down skills, drills, preps and activities to ensure every child learns and progresses throughout the 3 hours with us. Check the schedule for Grade Camps here

CLASSES FOR CHILDREN 4MONTHS - 6 YEARS
We have a few select classes running over the summer holidays; especially for those not constrained to the summer holidays or children wanting to continue their gymnastics over the holidays we're here! Take a look at which classes we're running over the summer; Summer Classes at TLG Leeds
