Local gem: The Little Gym of Bay Ridge

We are continuing to explore New York and it’s neighborhoods for you, mommies. New York is jam-packed with awesome play spaces and lovely playgrounds. All you need is just get to know is which to choose.

Today’s catch is The Little Gym of Bay Ridge.

A play space specially tailored for little kids. Though it is a part of a larger chain, The Little Gym of Bay Ridge is stands out among others.


Using a holistic “Three-Dimensional Learning” approach to skill development, instructors can find a way to open every child’s heart. The philosophy is based on three core tenets: “Get Moving” to foster flexibility, strength, balance and coordination; “Brain Boost” to nurture listening skills, concentration and decision making; and “Citizen Kid” to promote sharing, teamwork, cooperation and leadership abilities.


What I find truly priceless – is their parent/child activities for little kids from 4 months to 3 years.

They offer six fun classes for parent and child activities:

  • Bugs: infants 4 – 10 months
  • Birds: infants/toddlers 10 – 19 months
  • Beasts: toddlers 19 months – 2 1/2 years
  • Super Beasts: toddlers 2 1/2 – 3 years
  • Jazzy Beasts, (dance): toddlers 2 – 3 years
  • Sporty Beasts, (sports): toddlers 2 – 3 years

We attended the Birds class. And I must say – it was INCREDIBLE! For the whole hour Avi was having pure fun! Learning new skills have never been so easy!


No fear at all!


Just a great time! Learning and fun!


Highly recommended!
