Testimonials- What people are saying about our Happy Feet Programme
“We can see the progression of skills by doing various exercises – not just kicking the ball around. It is great to see how the content of each level prepares the kids for what is to come in the next step. I particularly like how they advance a little bit at a time but not too much too fast. The class is well organized and Ed keeps it fun. We have been very impressed with how the classes are taught and really enjoy coming every week.” “I think your program is great. I’m so happy we were told to come try it out.” “My child has learned good coordination and to follow instructions. My child also has a lot of fun while doing so and that is what is most important. ” “Fun class working on a variety of skills with games. My child loves it! – Keep it up. Wish I’d known about it last year.” “Well structured program – I appreciate the interaction Jono gets with the other kids & the work on listening skills & soccer skill improvement.” “We’re very impressed – it’s a great program. My child really enjoys it.” “We took this programme with Ed before being advised to move up to the programme proper at 4 1/2. We can really see the difference between kids of the same age that have gone through the Happy Feet programme- gives them such a big advantage.” “This program should be advertised a lot more! It is great for kids of all ages!”
