Our Story

Who we are atThe Little Gym of Roslyn

Annie Young has always had a passion for early childhood development.  She was a public school teacher in NYC for 15 years as well as an academic support provider and a coach to other teachers across the city.  She is most excited about bringing her enthusiasm and expertise into this new adventure.
Annie, and her husband Garrick Young, have 2 young boys who like to stay very active.  They are always looking for new and fun things to do with their children.  When the family moved to Long Island, Annie was in search of an experience for her youngest boy that would provide him with an opportunity to socialize with other children as well as engage him in exciting learning experiences.
As Annie began to investigate The Little Gym and it's philosophies about child development, she knew it would be the perfect fit.  The Little Gym provides children with a safe environment to grow socially, cognitively, and physically.  But the best thing is that children don't even realize how much they are learning because they are having so much fun.  She is now completely committed to providing the most engaging and nurturing classes for children as well as above-and-beyond type service for families.  



Our Philosophy of Three Dimensional Learning

The Little Gym of Roslyn, 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.

40 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 years later, children at The Little Gym of Roslyn experience the benefits of Serious Fun.
