Who we are at
The Little Gym at Cherry Hill
In 2021 Beverly residents Amy and Chip Selley purchased The Little Gym of Danvers and relocated it from busy Route 114, to the more serene Cherry Hill Corporate Center only about 7 minutes away, right behind everyone's summertime favorite, Cherry Farm Creamery. The Selley's built out this brand spankin' new facility through the Summer of 2021 following their dream of one day giving the community a bustling health and fitness center to serve the children and young families of Cape Ann and beyond.
Amy’s background; after graduating from Syracuse University with a BS degree in Early Childhood Education in 1992, I worked for 10 years at the preschool located at the Harvard University School of Business in Cambridge. Most recently (for the past 10 years), I have been working at Beverly Public Schools as a preschool teacher in the intensive - integrated classroom. My role has been to work with developmentally delayed children, often on the autistic spectrum, and help to successfully transition them into Kindergarten with other children. My philosophy has always been to focus on the whole child; physical, mental, and emotional. I posted my first blog here for those who want to hear more and learn about post-pandemic child socialization. Lastly, as a teacher my work can only affect the amount of children in my classroom - not more than a dozen per year. By leaving my job as a public school teacher and dedicating my full time efforts towards operating The Little Gym: I will be able to positively affect 100’s of children per year, and I couldn’t be more humbled by that opportunity.
But it's hardly about the owners - it's about the amazing team that trains every day, and prepares every day, to teach successful classes for your children. Led by Gym Director Coach Kassandra, we know it's all about the culture, and making every team member feel valued, inspired and empowered.
