The Little Gym, Preston & Forest has a great team of teachers who love working with children! Our staff has over 40 years of experience in child development programs and are dedicated to helping your children develop their confidence, physical skills, flexibility, risk acceptance, and teamwork. And, of course, who doesn't know "Mr. Joel!!" He's almost always here and can be seen (and heard!) from across the parking lot! We can't wait to meet you, so give us a call or come on by! In the mid-1970s, The Little Gym concept sprang from the heart and mind of founder Robin Wes. An innovative educator, musician and kinesiologist, Robin envisioned a nurturing place where children could explore their physical development, while also growing socially, emotionally and intellectually. Although teaching physical education in a competitive setting was the accepted norm at the time, Robin believed there was a better approach. Instead, he created an environment filled with the spirit to achieve rather than the pressure to win. Robinʼs non-competitive approach was unheard of back then. Revolutionary, even.
