Our Story

Who we are at

The Little Gym of Montclair

It'a all about the kids! That's what we believe here at The Little Gym of Montclair.

We offer progressively structured classes and a positive learning enviornment. We strive to create opportunities for your child to try new things and build self-confidence. Our trained instructors nurture happy, confident kids through a range of classes such as parent/child classes and gymnastics, plus fun extras like parties, camps, and more. We want your child to learn to love the gym and come running in here with a smile on their face every time they come through our door! We give the kids lots of positive attention and we love it when you help us out with that at home. We also try to provide a clean, safe environment where kids can be themselves and feel comfortable around both children and grown-ups.

Philosophy

Our Philosophy of Three Dimensional Learning

The Little Gym of Montclair, 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 Citizen Kid!.  Read on to see how each dimension of learning helps your child grow into a well-rounded, well-adjusted super kid.

Get Moving

History
45 Years of

Serious Fun

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 characterizes us today. Forty-five years later, children at The Little Gym of Montclair experience the benefits of Serious Fun.
