 ABOUT

TUMBLEBUS IS A NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED CHILDREN’S FUN & FITNESS PROGRAM FOR AGES WALKING TO SIX YEAR OLDS.

THE PROGRAM WAS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE TUMBLING & GYMNASTIC INSTRUCTION AND FUN & FITNESS ACTIVITIES TO CHILDREN BY WAY OF A MOBILE GYM BUS & GYM FACILITY PROGRAM. THE CONCEPT CAUGHT ON QUICKLY AT LOCAL SCHOOLS AND CHILDCARE FACILITIES.  THE SCHARLOW’S SOON STARTED SELLING TUMBLEBUS’ AND TRADEMARK RIGHTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. TODAY THERE ARE OVER 300 TUMBLEBUS' AROUND THE COUNTRY, INCLUDING AS FAR AS HAWAII.

TUMBLEBUS HAS BEEN RECOGNIZED AS A FORTUNE'S TOP 500 SMALL BUSINESS, FEATURED ON CNN, "JOHN & KATE PLUS 8", AND NUMEROUS OTHER LOCAL NEWS CHANNELS FOR THE UNIQUE PROGRAM OFFERED.

TUMBLEBUS PROCEDURES

DRESS CODE
Tennis shoes are best! We jump, climb, hang, run, skip, leap, gallop, crawl, roll, hop, bounce, kick, start, stop, walk, dodge, walk on tip toes, "tap-tap-tap" on our toes, and have our toes in all kinds of funny places! High-heels and sandals and mules just don’t work! We don’t want any ankles twisted, toes smashed, or shoes flying off! (We leave all shoes on during class. We don’t want your child’s time on the bus spent dealing with shoes! Also, tennis shoes or hikers provide the best traction and stability for the foot).

Leggings or shorts under a dress is a must! We flip or roll or hang upside down one way or another at almost every class. Loose, comfy play clothes work the best! Puffy, or big pleated dresses can sometimes get in the way of performance, and then it becomes a safety issue!

Limit jewelry or hair accessories! Please, no necklaces or headbands which could be lost or broken. A simple pony tail to keep long hair out of the face works best!

BOO-BOO’S
By law, we cannot administer anything for injuries except for bandaids. If a scrape breaks the skin, or if a bruise or bump may appear, we will apply a bandaid and fill out an accident report to be sent home. A more serious injury would be handled by the daycare center’s emergency procedures on file, and an accident report would be sent home, as well as a phone call placed directly to you.

PARENT OBSERVATION
We welcome parents to observe a class! Feel free to drop in and see all the wonderful activities your child/ren are learning.


The TUSCALOOSA TUMBLEBUS is fully licensed and insured for operation.
