My eldest son, Scott, was a super active and energetic little boy. We moved to a new school, and I was looking for activities that would help him to burn some energy. One of the mums at school had worked in the Netherlands, and she recommended a brilliant programme there called The Little Gym. She was glowing when she talked about the way her children had fun and let off steam while learning listening skills, physical skills, teamwork and much more. It sounded amazing.

We were thrilled to find a The Little Gym not far from where we lived. We arranged a trial for our two sons, Robin and Scott, when they were three and five years old. We were “wowed” as soon as we walked through the door. The staff were eagerly waiting, and they welcomed us by name.

There were grins all around, and we were hooked! Read more

Our Philosophy of

Three Dimensional Learning


At The Little Gym, our environment is fun, but our purpose is serious. That’s why we embrace a proprietary philosophy called Three-Dimensional Learning, in which physical activity is a conduit for nurturing your whole child. The Three-Dimensional Learning approach to skill development means that every class we offer fosters growth in three holistic dimensions—Brain Boost!, Get Moving! and Life Skills! Read on to see how each dimension of learning helps your child grow into a well-rounded, well-adjusted child.

40 years of


An innovative educator, musician and kinesiologist, Robin Wes envisioned a nurturing place where children could explore their physical development while also growing socially, emotionally and intellectually. He opened the first The Little Gym in 1976 in Bellevue, Washington and infused those early classes with the same positive, non-competitive spirit that characterises us today. Forty years later, children in more than 300 locations worldwide experience the Serious Fun of The Little Gym.
