My kids really enjoy the class. One thing I would like to see in the future is that a firm student to teacher ratio is kept. Sometimes there are too many kids for one teacher to keep an eye on and I feel nervous for the teacher and students especially with young children. I would suggest 1 to 6 and any more than that needs 2 teachers.
It was very organized. It definitely took the stress off of me. The staff was so friendly, they put up the decorations i brought in just the way I wanted. I was so relieved that the hostess wrote down the names of the people and the presents they brought. The activities were fun and accomodating for all of the kids at the party. Patrice went above and beyond before and during the event to make sure everything would run smoothly and turn out great. She was so patient, understanding, and had a great upbeat positive personality. We will have only positive memories of our daughter's first birthday party. Thank you!
The party was perfect! I'm sorry I do not remember the two young ladies names that were there setting up, playing with the kids, organizing everything, serving the food and cleaning up, but they did a fantastic job! I am nine months pregnant, so not having to worry about setting up, cleaning up and hosting a birthday party was perfect for this tired mama. Thank you Little Gym!
Very high turnover of teachers. Current teachers have no control of class and no professionalism. Classes regularly start 10 minutes late because we have to wait for the last person to come and sit down. There is very little class direction and frequently we only get through 2 skills vs 4 previously. Music player errors are the norm and are huge distractions and periods of wasted time. Classes cater to the lowest level student which makes everyone else held back.
The party hostesses from The Little Gym did not make us feel welcome. It was very obvious they were ready to be done with the day, as our party was the last one for the day. They kept asking me to cut things short or begin the party early so they could end early. Games were not played to the extent that they were at our previous parties at The Little Gym.
My daughter had a blast at her birthday party! She loved getting to run all over the gym doing what she wanted in the beginning and then getting to do instructed games with the leaders. Nadia was a great host! We ended up running a little late and got to the gym at 12:50 when her party started at 1. Everything was set up and Nadia helped place my daughters cake pops on the cake stands, put the snacks in the fridge and offered lots of help. Somehow there was a misunderstanding and they though I didn't want drinks at my daughters party. I brought waters for the parents but Nadia offered to run to the store close by to get lemonade. it was such a stress-free party and was so happy that the girls that hosted my daughters party were so helpful! Thanks Little Gym of Friendswood!
The classes are too big for one teacher. The teachers are very young, and do not appear to have much experience with children. This inexperience leads to the children not listening, or engaging, and then the instructors get upset with the children. It is very hard at this age for these young ladies to focus on teaching the students how to appropriately perform the exercise as well as keep the others from running around. MOST of the instructors are very kind and do try very hard.
We had a great time. The girls were wonderful and so helpful. I loved that my husband and I got to play with our daughter, not be behind a camera the whole time and not worry about clean up. We already talked about doing it again next year!
I loved my experience last year- the workers were fun and enthusiastic! This year they were low energy, and appeared tired and unorganized. My guests even commented to me that they were not like the girls last year. It was disappointing.
