Best Gymnastics for Toddlers and Kids in Newton Area
A toddler gymnastics class was something that all my three kids did. I think I did it to tire them out and for my own sanity because it got us out of the house into the company of adults. Over the years, we’ve been to most of these places either for a class or a birthday party. There are a few requisites that I now have on my list as I select a gymnastics studio:
- Good parking.
- Safe, clean gymnastics space.
- Friendly instructors who can get my kid to come inside.
- Adequate space for waiting with younger siblings including seating for me.
- Adequate space to store kid’s shoes.
Energy Fitness and Gymnastics, 70 Jaconnet Street (off Needham Street)
We’ve gone here for years. It has all the requirements including great gymnastics classes for toddlers and they don’t have a competitive team. They are very nice too!
Exxcel Gymnastics and Climbing, 88 Wells Avenue
This is the place if you do want to do a competitive team. They also do lots of birthday parties!
TumbleKids, 201 Arlington St in Watertown (near Target)
I went here when I lived in the city. If price point is an issue, this is the place for you. They are very nice and the prices are very reasonable.

We took classes here and my kids still love going here for birthday parties.

There was one in Newton but it’s gone. We used to go there for birthday parties. It’s similar to My Gym.
