The result? Half the time, she clinged on to me and didn't participate in the activities. When I tried, she cried a little so I let her "stick" to me. (cannot even sit on the mat but must sit on my lap!!) She did look interested in the activities though, which I take as a good sign.
Well, her behaviour was not entirely surprising since she hasn't been with so many kids her own age before. In the class that day, there were 7 kids around the same age. Besides Elyssa, there was also another boy trying out the class for the first time. When I chatted with his mum, she said that he has been attending Tumble Tots for a few months. That could explain why the boy was feeling more at home than Elyssa.
Here's a photo taken right after the class. If only she can sit so quietly on her own at home. Ha hahh!!
Overall, I was happy with the class. It was quite interactive, there was sufficient time for the kids to socialise and I found the equipment nicer and newer than the Tumble Tots in Subang Parade.I ended up signing for the class. Fee info-
Annual Membership Fee : RM 150
Programe Fee : RM 420
The programe fee is for 12 classes to finish in 12 weeks. Since the trial class is free with any sign-up, that works out to RM32 per class. (or RM44 if I factor in the membership fee)
Hopefully, Elyssa will get more involved in the class activities and socialise with the other kids next time!
