Scallywaggs Gymnastics Welcome You As Family
As soon as you walk through the front doors of Scallywaggs Gymnastics you are greeted by our bright and cheerful office staff, who immediately make you feel welcome. They provide you and your family with all the information needed to settle you in quickly and enjoy your experience to the fullest. The families who attend classes at Scallywaggs each week will tell you that they see the office staff as an important part of their weekly routine as the children and parents mark off their attendance and sometimes stay around for a chat.
We pride ourselves on remembering the names of all the children who attend our classes. No name tags needed for us, we make a point of remembering who you are and will greet you by name each week. Our staff take time to notice changes with your child and acknowledge them. Our computer program sings “Happy Birthday” when a child has a birthday that week, so they are acknowledged with a sticker and everyone is aware of their special day. We make sure your family feels important and part of our Scallywaggs family in every possible way.
