I've been to a Little Gym for my nephew's 1st birthday party, but other than that I assumed it was more of a play space for infants. Boy was I wrong!
The Little Gym has over 300 locations around the world and is geared for children 4 months through 12 years. They have a three dimensional approach to learning that is based on three core tenets:
- Get Moving! - Fosters flexibility, strength, balance and coordination.
- Brain Boost! - Fosters listening skills, concentration and decision making.
- Citizen Kid! - Fosters sharing, teamwork, cooperation and leadership abilities.
Soles4Souls, a "Big Hearts, Little Shoes" donation campaign. It is an international charity that collects shoes and will distribute them to those in need around the globe. Beginning this fall, parents can drop off shoes that they or their children have outgrown or no longer need.
website to find a location nearest to you & donate. We all have a big heart in helping kids.
Disclosure: A Big thank you to Mom Central for inviting us to this event. I was only compensated for our travel expenses and given a thank you gift for coming. All of the opinions in this post are my own.
