The Little Gym: No Indoor Voices Allowed

The Little Gym August 2017
Programs at The Little Gym of Pearland provide children with so much more than an outlet for burning energy. Research shows that encouraging purposeful, repetitive, active play in young children provides a wealth of physical, developmental, and cognitive benefits and may be the key to fostering confident, successful kids.

For babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, our classes help to establish healthy, active habits, and foster important social skills like listening and cooperation. For older children, our classes complement and enhance the traditional school experience by building confidence, managing anxiety, and increase self-esteem and cognitive skills.

At The Little Gym of Pearland, we believe that kids should be able to act like kids. And we also believe fun environment are especially conducive to the kind of learning that prepares kids for life’s adventures. That’s why we encourage every child in our programs to giggle, shout, and holler to their hearts’ content. After all, when kids join in on the hoopla, they’re more excited to engage in the world around them.

Summer Safety Tips from The Little Gym

The Little Gym summer safety

Grab your swim suit, but don’t forget the sun screen! Fire up the grill, but be careful of the hot coals! Hop into the pool, but make sure you have all necessary flotational devices! While summer is a time for relaxation and fun, it’s important to make sure all of you take all of the necessary precautions to ensure your kids are safe. Check out our top 4 summer safety tips to avoid any seasonal mishaps.

  1. H20 – Be alert (and we mean ALERT) when your child is in or around water. Children should never be around any water unsupervised, that includes a water table. For young children, a good rule of thumb is to ensure your child is within arm’s length while in or around water.
  2. Don’t skimp on the sunscreen – Reapply sunscreen often, and lay it on thick! Sunscreen should be reapplied every two hours and even more often if kids are swimming, sweating, or around water. For little ones under 6 months and young it’s best to keep them in a shady area (or have them wear one of those extra-large hats).
  3. Car safety – it goes without saying, children should never be left in a vehicle unattended during the summer months. Due to rising temperatures, cars can get as hot as 115 degrees or even higher. Make sure children know not to play in or around cars during the summer months. Also – be careful of those pesky car seat buckles – they get hot and can potentially burn your child.
  4. Helmets on – if you plan on hitting the bikes this summer, make sure your child is always wearing a helmet. Bicycle helmets should be worn snug and should be replaced every three to five years.
