The Little Gym of Singapore

Ellie has been attending The Little Gym since she was a year old (at the advice of her physical therapist), and one of the first things we did after moving to Singapore was to connect with The Little Gym of Singapore.  Ellie has been attending classes there for the two years we’ve lived in Singapore, and I have nothing but great things to say about them.  Rhiannon began classes with them last week.

The Little Gym offers non-competitive gymnastics for kids 4 months of age through 12 years.  Kids are divided by age, and the curriculum builds upon itself.  In the baby classes, we do things like help them learn to pull into sitting from a prone position, as well as play games that help them develop awareness of their bodies.  Until age 3, a parent is present in the class with the kids, and after 3 it is a drop-off class.  At Elanor’s level (3-4 year olds), they’re doing forward rolls, baby cartwheels, walking on the beam, and more advanced skills.

I have never met a teacher there who is not wonderful with the kids, and if you have a very physical kid like Elanor, I would encourage you to check them out.

About a week and a half ago, Ellie’s class had their mid-year show.  Below are photos and video from that show.

        We loved it! Are you and R still in the Tuesday class? Or will she be taking the more advance class now that she’s approaching 10M?

      • Crystal says:

        We are moving to a weekend class. Rhi is moving into Birds because she turns 10 months on Monday Aug 13th, and because Ravi will be taking her to class. My back can’t really handle the demands of the class 😦

    Came by from bookjunkie, and this is such a tiny world! My girl, Raeann ,was in the same Little Gym class as Ellie! We were all under Teacher Gerry. I remember being so absolutely impressed by E’s athletic, agile ways in the gym! Good to see you here again, and hope all’s well!! 🙂

    • Crystal says:

      Wow! Hello! I think I remember her, but it’s been a long time since I was able to attend class with E (the pregnancy did a number on me last year). Are you guys still at the Little Gym?

      • yulingxpress says:

        Hope you are recovering well!! We aren’t there anymore. Stopped 1.5 years ago as R is attending school and we didn’t want weekend classes. Am so happy E is continuing! She is a natural gymnast! 🙂

      • Crystal says:

        That makes a lot of sense. E is in afternoon pre-k, so we were able to fit a morning class into our schedule.

        Thanks for the compliment. I don’t know where the talent comes from–Ravi and I are trip over our own feet clumsy!
