Three-Dimensional Learning at Manhattan's Top Kid's Gym Prepares Your Child For Success!, Manhattan, New York

Health, fitness, and the best education; parents work hard every day to make the right decisions for their children. Does your child’s education and extracurricular activities address the bright, energetic child right in front of you? The Little Gym of The Upper East Side created a holistic curriculum with a refreshing new, research-based model of healthy child development to address the three important kinds of learning. The kid’s gym uses play and movement activities which directly support and translate into the most important life skills.

Kid’s classes on the Upper East Side develop skills with “Three-Dimensional Learning.” The following summary demonstrates how the playspace’s activities touch on each piece of a child’s early development.

1. Get Moving!

Music, dance, gymnastics, and other physical activities at the kid’s gym improve athletic skills and teach healthy habits. Today, frequent inactivity is taking hold of children as early as seven. By acquiring fundamental movement skills like running, catching, and balancing, children will learn to love playing, and continue to grow their confidence, willingness to take on physical challenges, and even their cardio-respiratory health!

2. Brain Boost!

Physical activity has been shown to boost mental functioning from an early age. Through fun, creative, and playful activities at The Little Gym, children improve processing speed, working memory, self-control, listening skills, and sustained focus. Original music at the playspace has a profound effect on a child’s intellectual proficiency in reading, math, and communication skills. Pediatricians repeatedly recognize the importance of music and play in promoting healthy child development.

3. Citizen Kid!

The third category of learning at the kid’s gym is fostered by an environment of teamwork and friendship. By working together to accomplish goals, children learn empathy, leadership skills, patience, and form lasting friendships which are critical to the social and emotional development of every child. By running, jumping, and making music with their peers, kids can grow as well-rounded and well-adjusted individuals.

With little opportunities for physical education in school, your child needs top-notch extracurricular activities. By fusing social skills, fitness, and mental development, The Little Gym of The Upper East Side is able to offer a holistic approach. Set your child on the path to learning, friendship, creativity, and success by visiting The Little Gym on Facebook to find out more about the programs you will both love!
