My time at the sofa has been very good so far. The instructors are almost always happy to help but there ares some instructors that don't really explain concepts well. There are also many amazing cubs to join and after school activities. Sometimes paint nights are organized or baking note, trivia nights or even games nights. They are all very welcoming and nice.
