The Little Gym is a Child Development Program Incorporating Gymnastics for Learning and Play

The Little Gym in Puyallup provides activities founded in gymnastics designed to encourage children’s physical, cognitive, and social development. With their proprietary philosophy known as Three-Dimensional Learning, kiddos explore physical activity used as a conduit to nurture the whole child. Through these exercises, children are challenged to develop new physical, emotional, and life skills while playing in a safe setting.

“Our environment is fun, but our purpose is serious,” says owner Tom Watrous, who’s all about getting little ones active to help develop their mobility and physical skills while they’re young so it’s easier to maintain healthy habits when they’re older.
