What is the Jungle Bus?
The JUNGLE BUS is a mini-gym on wheels. It comes to childcare centers to teach fun and exciting gymnastics classes. The JUNGLE BUS is a school bus which has been converted into an
air-conditioned gym with padded floors and walls. It is full of preschool gymnastics equipment including monkey bars, balance beams, mini-trampoline, zip line and much more.
Yes, the students actually climb on board the parked JUNGLE BUS into their own mini-gym for an exciting gymnastics class. The JUNGLE BUS program teaches children that physical activities can be FUN & EXCITING. Our classes offer basic gymnastics, motor skill development, coordination, strength, flexibility while developing both listening and social skills.

Ms. Leigh was a competitive gymnast for 9 years & has coached gymnastics for the past 37 years from beginner to national competitive level. Ms. Leigh created the Jungle Bus in 1994. She has a BA degree from the University of Southern Mississippi in Business. She is also Safety Certified and Kinder Accredited through USA Gymnastics. Ms. Leigh also regularly keeps up with her CPR and First Aid certification through the American Heart Association.
Gymnastics has always been a passion of Ms. Leigh's. She loves that she can combine her passion of gymnastics with her passion to teach children. Teaching a child to feel good about themselves and to be excited about being active is her most favorite part of teaching on the Jungle Bus. And what a great job it is - getting lots of smiling faces & hugs everyday when you come to work.
Ms. Kristen has 21 years of gymnastics experience and loved teaching gymnastics for 11 years. She grew up in Texas, raised by a family who all love gymnastics, then moved with her family to Hawaii and continued coaching. When Ms. Kristen's family moved to Florida, she began teaching for Jungle Bus.
Ms. Kristen now works remotely from Texas and really misses seeing all the children so excited for Jungle Bus!
