What does rolling down the hill have to do with your child development?This is how you could help your little one thrive not just physically, but also intellectually, socially and emotionally
Who would have thought that rolling madly down a hill would develop your toddler’s ability to sit still and listen to their teacher at school. Seems counter intuitive, right? Or that peddling a tricycle could make learning a language easier for your child. Or swinging could help develop beautiful joined-up handwriting.
It may seem like madness at first glance. But the truth is that physical activity has much to do with all aspects of child development. From the moment children are born, they start enhancing their bodies and skills. And the best thing you could do as a parent is giving them the right motor and sensory stimulation.
“This is our specialty”, says Martin Petrov, founder of The Little Gym Sofia – a global child development program based on gymnastics, offered at more than 400 locations throughout the world. “Our classes are designed to give children a balanced portion of movement, tailored to every stage of childhood – from birth to tweens.”
The Little Gym welcomes babies from 4 months old and up, giving them a wide range of sensory experiences. Children develop their independence in an environment where they can climb, roam, and safely explore. They practice new physical skills while focusing on listening, manners, patience, and following directions.
“Rolling down a hill with a crazy grin, getting dizzy and falling over could actually help your child to focus, be still and listen quietly. We are aware of these unexpected benefits due to movement and it is our mission to bring that hill straight to our city. At our purpose-built gym children could explore the full capacity of their bodies and brains through various exercises, fun games and challenges, using professional gymnastics equipment. Together with their parents and peers, of course” – adds Martin and welcomes all children aged 4 months – 12 years at the gym with a special offer.
