What I find especially impressive about The Little Gym program Jayber has attended is the sincere seeming enjoyment and care the staff show in their work - they knew Jayber's name even on the first day when we came to try out the funny bugs class, and they've showed patience and warmth over the weeks it has taken Jayber to gain the confidence to join his peers for the entirety of the class.
Also, I appreciate the mix of instruction and freedom to explore the kids receive - I trust that Jayber is safe and that he is hearing good instruction on alignment, etc as he learns new skills, and i also see him relieved to have such a free fun space to be, where none of the things that look fun are off limits.
Kids love it, they have enough freedom to try movements on their own, while being guided by enthusiastic leaders. I love the whole staff's attitude. They are always smiling, helpful and patient. An hour of class goes by so fast, because they're always doing something fun. My girls can't wait till their next class!
The friendships my child has made are wonderful. She's always happy to go to gym class because she gets to see her friends who don't go to her own school. She's also progressing in learning new gymnastics skills and likes doing them on the bars.
