WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE

The Jungle is the happiest place at Pride! Our 1,400 square foot area dedicated to our youngest Pride members offers a safe place to play, learn, and explore. Our Jungle athletes run, jump, slide, tumble, and swing through challenges designed to grow their bodies and minds.  Our curriculum focuses on gymnastics-based foundation skill movements like Coordination, Backwards, Jumping, Rolling, Sideways, and Strength.

 Every two weeks, the whole Jungle gym is reinvented!   We do this to encourage continuous development of age-appropriate movement and social skills.  Jungle kids love to see what new challenges await them every week!  Pint-sized equipment, and plenty of creative and imaginative fun, provide a learning environment and style that’s perfect for preschoolers!

The Jungle hosts age-based weekly classes, and a play-based open gym Daytime Playtime on Thursday mornings.  See you in The Jungle soon!
