The Little Gym, an enrichment and physical development center for children, is opening their first Jersey City location on the ground floor of the new condo building 380 NWK in the Village neighborhood of downtown.
The Little Gym is for children from ages four months to 12 years and focuses on the development of motor skills, coordination, balance, social skills, sports & gymnastics skills, and self-esteem through curriculum-based gymnastics and movement programs. The owners of the Jersey City franchise, Danielle and Timothy Sporcic, are local residents and parents of a toddler.
“The Little Gym is the Springboard to your child’s Life Adventures,” said Danielle and Timothy Sporcic, in a news release. “We will promote growth in individuals, families and our community by serving as a trusted partner on the journey to developing well-rounded, confident kids. Our students progress at their own pace, and we create individualized goals for each child. Our mission is Serious, but the method is undeniably Fun!”
The Little Gym was started in 1976 in Bellevue, Washington and has since expanded to over 300 locations in 31 countries. Its unique approach to learning “embraces a proprietary philosophy called Three-Dimensional Learning, in which physical activity is a conduit for nurturing your whole child.”
Construction of the space has already commenced, with an opening planned for April 15. The transaction was brokered by Grid Real Estate.
