The Little Gym of Wandsworth


The Little Gym is the world’s premier learning and physical development centre for babies, toddlers and children up to the age of 12 years old. The Little Gym of Wandsworth is one of their leading sites, situated close to Wandsworth Bridge . As well as the central Developmental Gymnastics programme, it also runs holiday camps, birthday parties, and members only extras like ‘Tumble&Tea’ for preschoolers under 3 and ‘Practise Time’ for members aged 3-12 years old during school holidays. Above all else though, The Little Gym is about Serious Fun, and building confidence. They pride themselves on being a safe place where every child can truly be themselves.

Gymnastics Programme: The core offering of The Little Gym is its gymnastics programme for babies, toddlers and children aged 4m-12yrs, which is second to none. Each week, progressively structured classes and a fantastic learning environment enable children to try out new things and boost self-confidence.

For children under the age of 3, parents accompany their child into the gym. As well as physical skills, these classes cleverly weave in age-appropriate challenges to ensure that babies and toddlers reach their developmental milestones, through additional sensory activities, evolving into school readiness challenges and life lessons like sharing, taking turns and working in a team. As much as these classes are Serious Fun for kids, it opens up a new world of wonder for adults alike. Highly trained instructors share child development knowledge and tid-bits throughout every class making it a fun learning experience for all.

Children between ages 3 and 12 go into the classes on their own, so parents can enjoy a well-earned coffee whilst watching through the glass fronted gym!

For 3-5 year olds, their curriculum is designed to add imagination, fun and laughter through different monthly focussed themes, whilst learning real gymnastics skills every week. For older kids aged 6-12, the classes evolve into a more progressive non-competitive gymnastics class. This, combined with their small teacher-child ratios, a nurturing and positive teaching style and exciting state of the art equipment, allows for a much more varied and higher level of ‘real’ gymnastics skills being taught every week.

Holiday Camps: During the holidays, The Little Gym offers Ofsted-approved half day and full day holiday camps for children aged 3-12yrs with flexible booking options to suit every family’s schedule. These camps are designed to seamlessly blend gymnastics, games, fun, and learning, aligning perfectly with their 3-dimensional learning philosophy. In these action-packed sessions children will not only try fun, themed gymnastics activities, but also include elements from the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage).
