The staff was great! We had two age groups with us and they were willing to change things up to accommodate both groups. They offered to help with set up and clean up and even carrying things to our car. It felt like a good value for the money and most importantly the kids had a blast! Thank you!
The Little Gym makes everything so easy. The teachers were great with the kids and took care of all the work. I was able to relax and enjoy watching the party instead of being stressed out about coordinating everything.
This is the only 'program' my son joined this past year and he learned so much as far as patience, participation and listening - not to mention, he still got to be a toddler and explore on his own! Teacher Sarah was awesome and made sure that she spoke to every child in the class at least once. She has a great sense of humor and grace that the kids are drawn to and the parents appreciate. Thank you for making the first classroom experience for my son a good one! We can't wait for the next season to start!
Th Little Gym of Edina was a perfect place for my young son. He was an early walker and at 14 months and in the thick of winter I began looking for a gym. I was looking for a place for him to practice his gross motor skills, follow directions from other adults, and interact with peers. We tried a few different programs and really liked Little Gym's philosophy.
Some of the factors that made a difference to us were that only one class was in the gym at a time, the parent involvement, the themes incorporated into each lesson, the friendly welcoming staff and the cleanliness of the building and materials.
Everything, from making invitations to cleaning up after the party, was taken care of by the staff, so all we had to do was enjoying conversation with guests and taking pictures of kids. And the price is really reasonable;)
Gross motor skills development, how many of the instructors tie in other skills that our kids are in the process of learning (e.g. talking, letters, sounds, animals, etc), fun atmosphere and instructors
