I cannot say enough good things about The Little Gym of Frederick and the owner, Tiffany. My son began attending classes when he was just 8 months old and, as a new mom, the parent-child classes were a great way to bond with my baby while getting to interact with other parents. From the day we started classes, Tiffany made a point of getting to know my son and giving him individual attention. She is just amazing at striking the right balance between meeting my sometimes-hesitant child where he is and knowing when he needs to be pushed out of his comfort zone a little. I love seeing the pride in his eyes when he achieves something he didn't think he could do - like the first time he climbed the rock climbing wall on his own! After Covid arrived, my son was heartbroken about not being able to go to the gym . . . but then Tiffany created the most amazing interactive virtual programming. The virtual classes were the best source of consistency and normalcy for my now 3.5 year old and were an absolute gift throughout this time period. My daughter, who just turned 16 months, started the virtual classes at just 5 months old and they gave us the chance to have a special activity even with so much closed because of the pandemic. Even over the computer, I have gotten to see her learn to socialize with other babies and she lights up when she sees her teacher come on screen . . . I can't wait to be able to take her to in-person classes as soon as that is an option. Finally, a few weeks ago I realized that, after a year of being at home, my son really needed the opportunity to have peer interactions and learn to separate from me. I immediately reached out to Tiffany and she helped my son get started in the Wonderkids preschool program, where he is getting all the attention and support that he needs to be more comfortable in a school setting. Thanks to the many opportunities The Little Gym has provided, I feel confident that when my son begins preschool in the fall, he will thrive. Tiffany has gone above and beyond so many times for my kids and really made a difference in their lives. I had to leave this review because we are so grateful!
This place had potential, we had some good class and some not so good. The last straw is when I tried to cancel my membership during the pandemic. We had let our membership continue even through the gym had closed hoping things would reopen soon. After paying for 2 month of the gym not being open we decided to cancel and was told we still need to provide 30 days notice, so that was another month of we had to pay for nothing.
The concept is good but execution is poor. Classes are hit or miss in terms of when they will be held and how good/engaged the instructor of the day is. Would be worth dealing with at half the price.
We love Little Gym! Our daughter has been enjoying classes since the fall, and everyone is super nice. There isn't much to do with a small baby or toddler, but this is a perfect way to enjoy time with your little one and meet other families in the area. Tiffany and the other instructors are so good with the kids, and I appreciate that they share how or what our child is learning from the activities going on. We also just attended a birthday party there which looked like a professional party planner put it together! Surprise - they do it all and did it well! Keep it up Little Gym!
Good gym. Horrible management.
We would be honored! Please reach out and expect to be treated like the ROCKSTAR that you are! 🙂
