TLG_Facebook_Post_Baby_Bells_ParentChild_800x800

 

The Little Gym classes are a great succes, due to YOU, our loyal customers! Without the enthousiasm of the parent joining our (Parent-Child) classes, we cannot teach great classes with a lot of FUN! 

Our succes also comes from our parents who speak about The Little Gym and introduce new families into our The Little Gym network. Therefore, we would like to ask you to be an 'ambassador' for our programme. 

In the week of 19-25 November, we would like to ask our Parent - Child groups (0-2,5 yo) to help us with the following: Invite a friend with their child(ren), suitable in that specific class. This can be in the same class, or another class you are not attending, if the child is older/younger. (Please note, we only offer this for our Parent - Child groups) 

When your friend signes up for our weekly classes we give them AND you a voucher worth 40 euro, which can be spend for class fees, birthday party's or holiday camps. 

Please reserve your friend's spot soon by sending us an e-mail or give us a call with the name of the child and we will make the reservation!

NB: Some classes might be full, we will offer you another class that is still available. The voucher will only be given upon enrolment in the week 19-25 November.

TLG_PE_Early_Bird_Facebook_Blog_Astronaut_Girl_800x800_EN

 

Priority Enrolment for the new school year starts in May! We will take reservations for the new Season, that starts in August. Our classes are very popular and we want to guarantee our current members a place.

 

We would like to offer members a discount upon enroling for the whole school year. You will find the important information regarding the different enrolment weeks below:

 

Week 1 (8/13 May) Early birds enrollments

- We would like to offer our 'early birds' an interesting discount of 10% upon enrolling for the full school year. This can save you up to 80 euro!

- And we will offer the first 100 enrolments our 'limited edition' present: a powerbank! 

- Of course we will have something for our small friends as well. Your child can choose a present too.

- To make enrolments easy for you, you do not need to pay anything at the desk and you will only have to sign the enrolment form to specify your class preference.

 

Week 2 (15/20 May)

- This week will be the same as the first week, with the same presents and discounts, but if you really want that flashy powerbank, you'll have to be quick!

 

Week 3 (22/27 May)

- During this week we still offer our members a 10% discount upon enrolling for the full school year, which will save you up to 80 euro. For the children we will have a present ready at the desk, but you will probably have a low battery now, since the power banks might be gone  ;)

 

Week 4 (29 May/3 June) Last chance!

- As of this week we will offer a discount of 7,5% upon enroling for the full school year.

- After this week also non members and people from our waiting list can enroll. It could be possible that classes will be full at this point.

 

What are the advantages of reserving your spot in this month?
Let’s summarize:
- Guaranteed spot in the class you prefer (no waiting lists)!
- A 10% discount upon enrolling for the Full Season (45 classes --> save up to 80 euro!)
- A chance to win a birthday party, worth 280 euro
- The first 100 enrolments will receive a limited edition power bank

Congratulations Robin and Angelo!

20171108_140601

Dear Parent,

I would like to share some very exciting news from The Little Gym The Hague with you!

After 8 years at The Little Gym, completing two Master degrees, and having a lot of FUN we will say goodbye to Angelo as a Program Director at The Little Gym Den Haag. We are very sad to see him leave and wish him all the best with his new job.  We will miss you Angelo!

Angelo’s decision to further his career outside of The Little Gym has created the opportunity for others to step up and take on more responsibilities. Our amazing Robin has been at The Little Gym for over 6 years and she is an experienced, warm and fantastic instructor. I am therefore very excited to announce that starting December 1st Robin will be The Little Gym The Hague’s new Program Director! As Program Director of The Little Gym The Hague she will be responsible for the quality of the classes and the training of the team. Congratulations Robin!

Warm regards,

Vivian (Gym Director)

In the week of October 23-29 we will teach our classes within the Halloween theme. Children can come dressed up if they like! (parents too ;))

We also organize a special book sale in our lobby on Friday October 27 as of 9:30 in the morning. Claire Giblin will show and sell a selection of her Usborne books. Come and have a coffee and meet Claire! 

Below, Claire will introduce herself:

My name is Claire and I have just recently rediscovered Usborne Books. My children have both started primary school now and I found myself in the unusual position of having some time to myself and to follow my passion. 

I loved Usborne books as a child, and would sit for hours reading and loved a bedtime story with my parents. In today's fast paced world with Ipads and computers I think children forget about books. 

So today Im going to bring my Usborne books to you and give you an opportunity to share my enthusiasm for books!
