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.
