Internship The Little Gym Sofia

Picture

We are thrilled to welcome the team of The Little Gym Sofia (Bulgaria) into our gym from the 29th of March until the 2nd of April. As a prepartion for their opening, they will do their internship in the Den Haag Gym. Please let us introduce the team: 


"We are the team of The Little Gym Sofia in Bulgaria! Our gym is the first one to open in Bulgaria and we are super excited to be the ones to introduce the magic of The Little Gym to the kids on our city.  We feel privileged to do our internship in The Little Gym The Hague and can’t wait to meet you and your children later this week! In the meantime, here is a little information about us:

 

Martin: I am the owner of The Little Gym Sofia. I discovered The Little Gym through my younger daughter, Martha (7 yrs), who has been following the program in The Hague for 3 years now. I fell in love with the program, the philosophy and the teaching methods of The Little Gym. I have always wanted to find a way to help children, to do something that helps them develop their full potential. When I discovered The Little Gym, I realized this was the thing I had been looking for. Having gone through extensive training in The Little Gym program and philosophy, I have not only learned about gymnastics and teaching concepts, but  I feel I have also become a better father. And here I am today, with a background in international law and criminal justice, I am bringing The Little Gym to my home country in order to enable the kids from Sofia to experience its magic.

 

Radoslav (Rado): I am thrilled to be part of the very first The Little Gym in Bulgaria. I am crazy about sports. I have been chasing the ball since I was 3 years old. As a kid, I started with football and after that I tried almost every sport – from handball, to gymnastics, athletics, martial arts, swimming, rafting... Practicing sports is like breathing for me. I love kids. I have been teaching different sports to children of different ages and love working with them.

 

Gergana (Gery): I just love being part of The Little Gym family. With a bachelor degree in special education, practicing various sports has been a major part of my life since I can remember. In addition, I just adore children. I am a proud mom of three and also a passionate kids photographer. I love working with children, they inspire me and motivate me. Having the chance to combine all my loves and passions at The Little Gym makes me genuinely happy.

 

Lilyana (Lily): I feel privileged and super happy that I have become part of The Little Gym. I have graduated from the National Sport Academy in Sofia as a Sport Coach and a master degree in Karate and Sport for High Achievements. My sport career started with karate when I was just 9. I became part of the National Karate Team at the age of 13 and earned my black belt at 18. But my real passion is soccer – I played it professionally for 7 years. I love working with kids. I have been a karate coach since 2007 and a soccer coach of boys and girls. Children inspire me and make me a better person."

We will offer coffee and tea in our lobby and drinks for the little ones and snacks.

So much to choose from!

TLG_BackHandspringGirl (1)

A new phase has started in your child’s life! They are turning 6 and a whole world of new possibilities opens up for them and you. The offer of sports activities is more varied and can at times be overwhelming. What will be the best choice for you and your child?

Maybe you are very fond of dance or rugby and you would love to see your child enjoy these sports as you have done during your youth. Maybe the whole class is joining the ballet school and you child would like to join his friends?

Luckily your child has been working on a very strong foundation in their Giggle worms/ Good Friends class. They have grown stronger, more flexible and agile. They have learned to work together and be part of a team. Not that their improved physical abilities have opened up a new world of possibilities their class at The Little Gym will change accordingly….

Our Hot Shots and Flips classes are based on the official USA curriculum; it is all about learning cartwheel, handstand and back hand spring! The primary focus of a Hot Shots / Flips class is learning gymnastics skills. The groups will be divided based on individual level and specifically for those children that are ready for an even bigger gymnastic challenge, we have the Twisters/aerials classes.

We challenge the children at their own level in a non competitive-environment where it is more important to try your best than be the best. Working with small groups and a ratio of one teacher to 7 children, every child will receive ample individual feedback. The themes of the classes specifically suit this age group with a strong focus on working together and helping each other to succeed.

Please come see us at the front desk with any questions you might still have. We are ready to discuss the different options for you and your child.


Your child will go to school!

PreKJumping

How time flies!  Your little one is already turning 4 and that means ‘school’. Your child might be ready for it, but are you too? Perhaps you would like to read a little bit more about what you can expect.

As a parent you might worry that your child’s first period at school is too tiring. They will start with 5 days, having to complete many different assignments while sitting still for a long time. In addition your child needs to get used to a new group dynamic in a classroom and having to share the attention of the teacher with 28 other children. No wonder this can be exhausting! Luckily your child has had the opportunity to prepare for this upcoming challenge in our Funny Bugs class. They have learned to follow instructions, to stay with a group and to build a trusting relationship with an instructor. Now that the expectations of your little pupil are changing, The Little Gym class will change as well.

The Giggle Worms / Good friends classes are specifically developed for children 4 years and older to support them during this important new phase in their life. We offer these classes after school and during the weekend.

After a day of sitting still, your child will be eager to go to a warm and nurturing environment that they already know, where they can burn energy and be themselves.

Every child is different and each will have their individual pace to get adjusted to their new schedule. This is not only a big change for your child, but also for you as a parent!

We are ready to help you to find a suitable solution for you and your child. Please come and see us at the front desk to discuss the different options that we have to offer.
