The Little Gym was launched in the US in 1976. Its unique programme is designed to boost self-esteem while building physical, social and intellectual skills. Weekly themed classes enable children to progress at their own pace and gain confidence in a lively, fun environment. Activities promote co-ordination, balance, rhythm and flexibility, as well as listening and social skills, giving youngsters vital tools for life.
The Little Gym Harpenden is situated at Rothamsted Research and offers a curriculum-based gymnastics programme. Weekly classes are available for children of all abilities, from 4 months to 12 years, with free introductory sessions for all.
Classes run all year round, during term-time and holidays. Sessions for under 3's, accompanied by their parents/carers, are for 45 minutes. Pre-school and primary classes are for one hour, during which parents can spectate, with siblings, from a comfortable viewing area. Parties also organised.
