The practice times change and change too often. While this may be flexible for some, it comes off as a way to avoid providing practice times for every student. This way only students with a stay at home parent can pop in for extra practice.
I always felt that the price is too high. So as a justification, in my mind, I figured that at least she could get practice two or three times a week.
This rarely happens because the practice time for her age group will sometimes be during school. Or something like 4:30pm to 5:30pm when we don't pick her up from her after-school care until 5:40pm...
If there could be consistent weekly practice schedules then I could at least plan her other activities around that. She has swimming and music and dance lessons. All are less expensive.
Sorry, there's lots of good things too but this question specifically asks for the disappointments.
The program has helped my daughter build confidence. I also like the flexibility when a day needs to change. I would give the gym at 10--- if there were opportunities for advanced classes when the students reach their goals.
The teachers and the programming. The Little Gym challenges my children in their gymnastic skills, as well as their cooperation skills, and their problem solving skills, all the while providing a fun and safe environment.
I would like to see cpr certification and first respond certification for all the stuff members.because one time my girl fell down and the coach didn't handle situation professionally. That's my biggest concern and also that's why I'm not using parent survival nights( although I love the idea)but I'm not sure if my girl is safe enough. But overall I'm happy with training.
Both of my boys love coming to classes at the Little Gym of Germantown. My youngest is 10 months and my oldest is 6 years old. The programs are great for both of them. They both have smiles on their faces while in class and I can tell that it's especially building confidence in my 6 year old. I also love the flexibility of being able to schedule makeup classes and switching classes if necessary.
