Re-opening for Day Camps June 22nd, 2020
Things continue to change daily. But one thing that will never change is our commitment to the health and safety of our member families and our team. You have put your trust in us, and we take that very seriously.
We made it to Alert Level 3 and are permitted to open for Summer Day Camps with restrictions and eagerly await the "green light" to begin offering classes and birthday parties!
We will begin offering Day Camps on Monday, June 22nd with a limit of 10 children per camp to ensure we maintain physical distancing and comply with government restrictions. The ages of children permitted to attend camps have been adjusted to 4 - 10 years while we adapt to the new protocols. As usual we offer flexibility to busy families and provide enrollment options for as little as one half day camp all the way up to many weeks of camp.

As we get closer to our reopening date, we will share more details about the new physical distancing, cleaning and sanitization precautions we will be taking to keep everyone safe.
Members who paid in full for the 2019-2020 season can take advantage of your accrued class make-ups during the closure and trade them in for camps. Please contact us to discuss trade options.

Class Suspension effective March 16th, 2020
Dear Awesome Members,
I want to start by thanking you once again for your ongoing support and positive messages over the last several days. As a small family-owned business, it is not an easy decision to pause our classes and activities during this public health issue. However, the wellness of our members, team, and the social responsibilities we have as a leader in our industry is most important at this moment in time.
Considering the recent announcement regarding the NLESD closure, The Little Gym of St John’s will be closing for the foreseeable future in alignment with the recommendations of NL Public Health and Community Services for social distancing. We look forward to getting back to the fun, skill growth and the community we have built at The Little Gym of St. John’s as soon as possible.
We will continue to update you as the situation unfolds and would be grateful if you would allow us to pause your enrollment for now.
As a small business employer, we are doing everything we can to support our instructors through these challenging times. We would love for your help in lifting their spirits! Please text a video, picture or personal message to your child’s favorite instructor and we will make sure they receive it.
Families registered for Easter Camps will have the opportunity to transfer their camps to Summer Camps or Christmas Holiday Camps. Should you have any special circumstances please reach out to us individually.
Member Summer Enrollment will now be extended. We will provide you with a specific extension date upon re-opening. You can enroll in Summer Classes and Camps online and members will receive the discounts offered during Early Summer Sign-Up. Select schedules in the bar above>classes and Summer Session from the drop down menu for Summer Enrollment!
Once again, thank-you for being part of our family and trusting us with your beautiful children! We love them and feel so privileged to be part of their growth!
Your safety and well-being are always our top priorities. If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at (709) 700-7039 (text-only). We appreciate your patience as our response time may be a little longer than usual – but we promise to get back to you as soon as we can!
Happy Handstands and Lots of Love,
Your The Little Gym of St. John’s Team!

We are the Springboard for Life's Adventures...
Our goal at the Little Gym is to give children the experiences and tools they need to succeed in life. We do this through the challenges and fun of learning in a warm and nurturing, age-appropriate setting (even as young as 4 months old!).
We focus on three main areas of learning which we call "3D Learning."
(i) Physical Skills, such as balance, co-ordination, flexibility and strength, which we call “Get Moving!”,
(ii) Cognitive Skills, such as listening, problem solving, concentration and decision-making, which we call “Brain Boost!”, and
(iii) Social & Emotional Skills, such as sharing, teamwork and co-operation, which we call “Citizen Kid!”.
At The Little Gym, we have “Serious Fun”, and that means that we want parents to see the learning and growth opportunities that their children are experiencing, but for the kids - we just want them to have fun and we realize these skills cannot be learned in a short period of time. That is why we offer a full school year of learning (Sept to June!)
