Great Falls Gymnastics Academy - A great place for kids of all ages.
The Great Falls Gymnastics Academy, is a learning center based around Gymnastics. Located downtown at 815 1st Ave N in the renovated Haggerty Motors Building, this is much more than just Gymnastics Classes. It is also a Pre-School.
My daughter absolutely loves this place. She has been attending since before she turned 2, starting out in the Tumble Bugs class. At 3 she started in the Grass Hoppers and now is in the Learning Academy.
She started out a little scared and clingy, but now she is all independent, and is ready for Mom to leave as soon as she is dropped off. This is harder on my wife than my daughter...
One of my daughters favorite spots in the Gym is "The Pit". A huge hole in the floor where the vehicle mechanics used to work underneath the cars. Now filled with giant sponge blocks, the kids love to run and jump in it.
The staff has been great and my daughter really likes both Miss Patty and Miss Cassy. I look forward to the continued skills she will learn throughout this pre-school year.
If you are planning on enrolling your child, take notice that there is often a waiting list due to the popularity.
