Meet the Founders
Little Land Pediatric Therapy & Play Gym was founded by Ernie and Debbie Beltz to provide quality therapy as well as a fun and developmental open play environment to kids in their community. After opening the flagship Little Land in Austin, Texas, Ernie and Debbie received overwhelming response from others who were interested in becoming a part of the Little Land family.
In January 2017, Little Land Play Gym launched as a franchise system.
Debbie Garcia Beltz is an Occupational Therapist and has worked in the pediatric field for nearly 15 years. Originally from Miami, she has put her skills to work at a number of facilities including children’s hospitals, private clinics and home health. She has a passion for helping infants, toddlers and kids grow to their full potential and realize what they’re truly capable of.
Ernie is the CEO of the Little Land Franchise system and is responsible for managing, developing and maintaining the system as it expands around the globe.
Together, Ernie and Debbie hope to bring Little Land to communities everywhere with the goal to make a positive impact on future generations across our country and around the world.
