At The Little Gym of Draper we know how important it is for children to build, gain, and radiate confidence. Here are 3 things we do in the gym that can be echoed at home:
1. Specific Positive Feedback (SPF). Rather than saying "good job" when your child has done something well, give them specific positive feedback on what was SO great about what they did. Words of praise mean more when they refer to a child’s specific efforts or new abilities.
2. Encourage and support your child in everything they do! Whether it is at home or at The Little Gym of Draper, words of support and encouragement go a long way!
3. Trust your child and let them make decisions. This will allow your child to build their confidence knowing that you trust them enough to make decisions on their own!
Confidence is key! Whether your child is at The Little Gym of Draper or at home, it’s important to help your child gain the confidence they need to succeed in the future. Visit our website for more information on programs for your child. Click here.

Our parent/child programs for children 4 months-3 years encourage little ones to explore, gain independence, and try new kills. In Pre-K and Kindergarten programs for 3- 6 year olds, children are learning to listen and follow directions, cooperate and work in a group. And in grade-school programs for 6-12 year olds, children are strengthening their bodies, and gaining a whole lot of confidence!
