My son and daughter love coming to your Jitterbugs classes. In the four years they have been coming to your classes, they participated in both the Kindergym and Gymfun classes. You lead the fun classes with enthusiasm and hands-on demonstrations, and ensure that every child receives individual attention during each class. The Kindergym classes was precious bonding time with the kids, while they learned valuable first gymnastics skills. They also enjoyed the fine motor skills and crafts, and were very proud to bring home their creations. With the after-school gymnastics (Gymfun) classes, I could see regular growth and development. You and your other coaches are very encouraging and supportive towards the kids to help them built confidence, both in terms of physical skills and emotional strength, like when you encourage them to “have a go” at something they may feel unsure about, and praise their efforts and growth. Your Jitterbugs classes enriched their little lives, and prepared them for an active, happy and healthy future.
Leaving jitterbugs is like leaving family behind really. Your program is wonderful and so are you and all the other coaches. I loved the personal attention that the kids get and the fun that gets blended in with learning gymnastics. Thank you so much for the years that Chavella has been with you. She will miss you, Georgia and Jitterbugs very much I’m sure.
Jitterbugs has been a wonderful gymnastics program for our two daughters. They love the fortnightly themes that Julie puts together and look forward to attending the classes. Both daughters have an understanding of how to correctly perform forward rolls, handstands and have a strong awareness of safe techniques. As a parent, I am delighted with the program. I particularly like the way Julie is with the children and how interactive the program is.
Isabella loves going to Jitterbugs. When she gave my parents the pictures of her and the class at Jitterbugs, she started to explain to them the pictures and what she does at Gymnastics: 'I swing, I do some walking and hopping, we play games and I dress up too, and we make things like our hats in this picture'. It was so great to see her expressions and explaining/demonstrating to my parents what was occurring at Jitterbugs. Thank you, Julie
