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.
