The Edwardsville location will…

  • add even more options for our popular Jungle Preschool gym, beginner and intermediate level tumbling, cheer, and Gym Girls classes.
  • serve as a new home for the amazing The Wonder Years preschool, with the addition of multiple classrooms and a beautiful outdoor classroom, and full-time school and care options.
  • and break new ground with The Swim School at Pride, a state of the art, warm-water, friendly and fun learn to swim club for kids!
