The Little Gym of Livingston Introduces New “Victory Skill Growth Tracker”

August 12, 2013 at 9:05 PM

LIVINGSTON, NJ – The Little Gym of Livingston recently launched its new initiative called the “Victory Skill Growth Tracker” which will allow the gym to provide regular updates to parents about their children’s activities and personal progress.

With a focus on “serious fun,” The Little Gym of Livingston designs programs that help children build self-confidence and self-esteem through physical activity.  To enrich its existing running programs, the gym’s child-focused physical development center wanted to create a way for parents to share in the excitement of their children’s accomplishments.  Now parents can do just that through the “Victory Skill Growth Tracker.”

“Not only do we want parents and caregivers to be able to celebrate their children’s achievements,” said Claudia Hollander, owner of The Little Gym of Livingston. “We want to emphasize that the fun classes we offer here at The Little Gym of Livingston are actually designed to help children develop very specific skills.”

The curriculum at The Little Gym of Livingston is built around themed “Learning Units” that are designed to take children through a natural progression of physical, emotional and life skills. As children build on their successes in each Learning Unit, their self-confidence grows, giving them a can-do attitude about their bodies and their social abilities, and creating a strong foundation for success in school and life.

To enhance this philosophy, the “Victory Skill Growth Tracker” will add more value to the Little Gym’s already existing approach to skill development; which is outlined in a three part themed learning unit curriculum.  The themed units teach certain skills sequentially in order to produce specific outcomes:  Get Moving! (physical development), Brain Boost! (emotional development) and Citizen Kid! (social development).

Through the new tracking method, Little Gym instructors will be able to track student skill growth easily throughout the season.  The data will then be relayed to parents either face to face or via email.  Progress will be documented, outlining all measures of improvement for each child.

“While we know that parents will appreciate hearing about their children’s achievements, we also believe that meaningful learning is about the journey and not the destination,” said Hollander. “Our instructors focus on the journey by delivering a fun, non-competitive, high-energy experience for every child at The Little Gym. We believe that children who experience success in that type of stress-free environment grow into self-confident adults who are intrinsically motivated to continue to expand their skills and excel at whatever they choose to do.”

The Little Gym of Livingston, located at 4215 Town Center Way, is now enrolling students for the 2013-2014 Season. To learn more, please contact
