A community like Gymtime is not just built physically. More than anything, it is the dedicated staff that makes this the very best family enrichment center in New York City. A team like this is a resource that is developed over decades and simply cannot be replicated. Our family of teachers and coaches has been with Gymtime for many years. All of them are skilled educators who share a love for inspiring children and an expertise in how they learn and grow.

Our founders have 30 years of experience providing innovative learning and physical activity programs to children and families in New York City. All of our head teachers are licensed and certified in Early Childhood Education and hold Master’s degrees in related fields. Our gymnastics coaches are certified by USA Gymnastics, including specific certification in safety and risk management. We all work together closely on a daily basis to ensure that Gymtime offers every child the very best combination of physical development, education and fun.

“Everyone who walks in these doors can see Gymtime is not a place that was built overnight. We designed this space based on our decades of experience working with children; we recruited an unmatched staff that only gets better year after year; and we arrange every program to meet the needs and desires of each of our families.”
