Winner: The Little Gym
The Little Gym offers progressively structured classes and a positive learning environment to create opportunities for your child to try new things and build self-confidence. Their trained instructors nurture happy, confident kids through a range of classes like parent/child classes and gymnastics, plus fun extras like parties, camps and more. The Little Gym embraces a proprietary philosophy called three-dimensional learning, in which physical activity is a conduit for nurturing your whole child. This approach to skill development means that every class they offer fosters growth in three holistic dimensions—Brain Boost!, Get Moving! and Citizen Kid!
