Psst! You're invited to join a cool new club at The Little Gym. This club has no secret handshake. In fact, it's open to all preschool-age members of The Little Gym, and all
that's required for admittance is a healthy curiosity and sense of wonder about the world.
Introducing WonderKids Club™, a brand new enrichment program that extends The Little
Gym experience for children ages 3-4. Self-expression and imagination are at the heart of this engaging program that celebrates the awe of learning. Each three-hour WonderKids Club session combines a Funny Bugs or Giggle Worms gymnastics-based class with active learning and instructor-led, immersive play in the Multi-Purpose Room. Arts and crafts projects, creative songs and story time all reinforce the week's Learning Unit and theme. For WonderKids, the Club offers a three-hour interactive learning experience, a three-hour structured play session and a three-hour exploration of their innate sense of wonder. For parents, WonderKids Club provides three hours of much-needed grown-up
time and the confidence that their children are happy and growing in a safe, structured, familiar environment.
Joining WonderKids Club doesn't require a special password or a long-term commitment. All children ages 3-4 may join, regardless if they also participate in another program at The Little Gym. WonderKids can enroll for as little as one session at a time, or as much as the entire Season. However often they join in the fun, all WonderKids stretch their imaginations, as well as their muscles, and develop their communication
skills alongside their gymnastics skills. And we call that something wonderful.
WonderKids Club is coming to The Little Gym near you in September! View the schedule below and

Tuesday & Friday:
It starts with a sniffle -- next thing you know, the whole household is sneezing, coughing, and passing tissues. Before long, the common cold, or worse, seasonal flu, is upon you.
According to the CDC, up to 20% of the population gets the flu each year. The Mayo Clinic cites the common cold as the number one culprit of stay-home-sick-from-school days in children.
While you can't completely germ-proof your child, you can separate fact from fiction to keep your family healthier, and save time, money, and frustration. Start by putting some of the more common myths and misunderstandings to rest by reading about the top 3 cold and flu related myths.
Myth #1: The flu vaccine causes the flu
Truth: Getting a flu shot may cause symptoms that feel like the flu, but the viruses contained in the flu shots have been killed, or "inactivated." which means they can't cause infection. While there may be some achy side effects that can sometimes follow the flu shot, it just means your immune system is responding and processing the vaccine.
Myth #2: You're more likely to get sick if you're cold
Truth: Despite mom's warnings that you should bundle up, being cold does not cause a cold. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, infections prevail in winter months because they are spread when more people stay indoors for longer periods of time and are in closer contact with each other.
Myth #3: Hugging and kissing are great ways to spread cold and flu germs.
Truth: Cold and flu viruses like to enter the body through the nose or eyes, so a hug or a peck on the cheek isn't likely to be dangerous. Don't be afraid to give your sick child plenty of affection, and don't worry that a kiss or hug will spread your germs to him (or vice- versa).
Many parents recognize The Little Gym locations as safe and clean gyms for children. We work hard to ensure each and every visit lives up to your expectations. Daily and weekly cleaning and sanitation helps keep our environment sparkly and keeps the germs away.
Here’s where you can help. As with any other illness, we ask that you do not come to class if your child is coughing, sneezing, or has had a fever within the last 24 hours. Our generous make-up policy allows you to attend a make-up class by simply calling us prior to the absence.
