But the bustling excitement and family-friendly activities you'll find at The Little Gym doesn't only matter in terms of how much fun your child is having. Recent studies conducted by the University of Illinois have demonstrated that among elementary school children, participation in a physically-active after-school program improved levels of “executive function”, which contributes to reaching academic goals. Monitoring each child’s ability to switch between tasks and to comprehend reading materials, those with an increased exercise routine had superior abilities to ignore distractions and react quickly to questions.
