Comment: We love the Naydenov Preschool! We have been so impressed with the teachers and the environment at Naydenov Preschool, our son looks forward to school asking every day if he gets to go and he has learned so much this past year. When he started he didn’t have too much interest in learning the alphabet or even the alphabet song (he’s a numbers guy!) And now he’s writing his name! He’s learned so much more than I would’ve ever imagined in his first year of preschool… Miss Ruth & Miss Heather are absolutely amazing teachers! We are so pleased with our experience here!


Birthday party 4 out of 5 Stars

We had my son’s birthday party here today. It’s great fun for kids, because they get to run around and do stuff. The girls that helped us today were friendly even though it must’ve been tiring as we had a big group of kids (about 24).

The facility is a bit older and the party room was filled with older trophies that had a bit of dust. The room seemed to be clean. The nice thing for parties is that you can bring all your own stuff, no crazy upsell and mandatory “food” package (like the crappy overpriced cheesy cardboard pizza at Chuck e cheese, also known as hell on earth).

When you first walk in you get a bit of the “whiff of sports”, but it’s not overbearing and I didn’t notice it after that. It’s a fine place to go, but probably not for the pristine princesses.


Ray Works Hard At Being A Great Coach!

“I just wanted to take the time to let you know how much our family and I appreciate Ray Butcher.

Ray has been a part of our life for the past 7 years.  Our daughter Mekina Tapio began gymnastics at Naydenov as a three-year-old and Ray was one of her first coaches.  We really liked his style of coaching and his interest in our daughter.  We were invited to join the Pearls’ team in June of 2009 and Mekina has been competing since Fall of 2009.  She has done very well…placing first in Fall State for Level 4 and in the top 5 at all her subsequent meets.

We attribute her success to the great coaching of Ray Butcher. Ray has a genuine concern for Mekina and the girls on his team.  He cares about them, not just their success.  His style of fun and discipline has made gymnastics an enjoyable sport for our daughter.  She has learned a lot…how to work hard, believe in herself, be a team player, as well as excel at gymnastics.

We are very thankful for Ray and the role he has played in Mekina’s life.  He works hard at being a great coach and we appreciate him. “

Best Birthday package in vancouver

We had the best ever birthday party for my daughter there last week. The hostes was great with the kids and they had a blast. Thanks Naydenov Gymnastics!


Great Time had here

This gym is a lot of fun. We have had our son’s birthday parties here and the kids loved it. The kids can jump, run and make as much noise as they like – and you don’t have to clean up the mess. The best part is when everything is said and done – the kids are exhausted.

Great Place for a Child to Learn!

My son started doing gymnastics here and just LOVES it. The staff are great at teaching the kids, while allowing them to still be children.The staff is well-trained, and has an eye for detail. My recommendation would be to stick with the coaches who have been teaching for a longer period of time if you have a budding gymnast on your hands, but they have many young instructors to teach the little ones, or those just there to have fun that do a great job.

Great Customer Service

My daughter’s dance class was cancelled and I didn’t get the message. We showed up and they offered her a gymnastics class instead, she was so happy and excited! I was impressed with the customer service. I would highly recommend them!

Clean, lots of colors and shapes. I remember going to Naydenov Gymnastics when I was a child. It’s still one of the funnest places in Vancouver and the Portland area for kids to have fun. – My son loves going to the Sunday open gym.

One Of My Favorite Places!

Naydenov Gymnastcs i my daughters favorite place ever. The staff there are very well trained and very nice. They brighten up my daughters day and help her become a better gymnast. She knows everyone there and shes only 6. Even though some days at Open Gym are crowded, there are still many nice people to meet there.

Best Birthday Party Ever!

Just had the best birthday party! Great customer service and fun staff. The children really had a great time on the bungees and foam pit. Excellent value and lots of fun for all the kids and plenty of space for the parents to visit and watch.

Owner Cares

My children recently had a bad experience at Naydenov’s Parent’s night out. When I called the owner to complain, he was already aware of the situation and was already addressing it. I’m pleased that he listened, cared and wanted to make things right. I could not have asked for anything more.


Great Coaches – Kid Friendly

Incredible facility – lots of fun!. Just finished Carly’s 2nd month at Naydenov Gymnastics in Vancouver. I wish I had found this place a long time ago. Great coaches – kid friendly – A really neat place to see a variety of gymnastics from babies to young girls and boys with incredible gymnastics skills.


Great gym – Great for kids

My three boys (age 3 to 7) have attended classes at Naydenov gymnastics consistently for the last year and I am beyond pleased. The coaches (Sam, Glendyne, Helen) have challenged and encouraged the kids without being fake… and they get results! My boys have gained strength, skill, and confidence and I see their positive relationships with their coaches influencing other areas of our life. When my daughter is old enough I will enroll her as well! It’s a win!


I enjoy this gym almost too much

I enjoy this gym almost too much. I feel like there only goal is to make me a better me!



My two children have been coming here for the past 2 years, and I have to say that Sam is the most wonderful coach we could ask for. He has many years of experience as a gymnast and coach, and it shows. I would recommend him to anyone wanting a quality coach who offers structured instruction and expects and encourages excellence from his students. He has been wonderful for my difficult to contain child, and we are so thankful for his loving and fun influence. A+!


Our kids love Naydenov

We’ll never go anywhere else! Our kids love Naydenov. It’s exciting for them and very affordable.


Our Children Always Showed Enjoyment

For nearly 1 year and a half now, our 2 daughters have been attending classes at Naydenov. During the first year, they spent several times a week in a variety of Sam’s classes. We really appreciate his teaching style. Sam asks only a reasonable degree of mutual respect and willingness to listen from his students. Our children, as with the other children, always showed enjoyment while in Sam’s class and spoke highly and often of him while at home. He really does have a way with kids. Most of the parents we talk to seem to have at one time or another placed their children into one of Sam’s classes and both child and parent speak so highly of him. We owe much of our children’s gymnastic success to Sam.


They take the stress out of hosting a party!

This was definitely a place you should take kids with excess energy! Their teachers are skilled in the sport and do a great job in motivating & teaching the kids proper form. Our son has a great time and quickly got over the stereotype that it’s a girlie sport! This is a cool place to throw a unique birthday party too. They definitely take the stress out of party hosting a group of kids!
