Since 1975 Tumble Bees℠ has been the premier preschool gymnastics program in the Greater Cincinnati area! Thousands of families will attest that their Tumble Bee℠ education has developed “happy, healthy, responsible children” into two generations of “happy, healthy, responsible adults”!

Tumble Bees℠ is so much more than a gymnastics program for preschoolers. Our emphasis is not on being the fastest, the strongest or the best. Instead, it is on the excitement of learning. We believe that every child wants to learn, and when we find that delicate balance between learning and play, children are inspired!  With just the right amount of success and challenge, your child will discover that hard work is rewarding and that learning is fun.

We believe that the greatest strength of our program is our teachers. Tumble Bee℠ teachers have a genuine love for children, as well as a thorough understanding of early childhood development. Each of us is here to help your child grow and learn, and we do that through the fun and challenging activities we offer each week. 

Research indicates that the primary reason children participate in sports is to have fun. The number one reason they quit is because it is not fun anymore. Our teachers understand this concept and are committed to creating a positive, fun, learning environment in every class.  We know that the preschool years are the best time to learn to “love to learn."

Discover MERGERS
At Kids First we realize that every child is a kid first. But, they are each on their own person. They all grow and develop differently. Mergers is for children who need extra attention to succeed at first. It is for building their abilities to be able to be independent in the future.

My two children, Kyle and Ava, participated in Tumblebee℠'s this past winter/spring and both really enjoyed themselves and grew personally and athletically. I wanted to drop a specific note of thanks to Miss Emilie who was Kyle's teacher for both sessions. He went from crying on day one refusing to engage in any aspect of the program to full participation and actually emulating Miss Emilie at home to his little sister. This transformation I contribute primarily to the love and attention he received from Miss Emilie while he was there. I wanted to get her a note that truly thanked her for all that she did for my son. I was so impressed with her ability to make Tumblebee℠'s enjoyable for my son. She deserves recognition for her hard work! Thanks, Miss Emilie!

Just wanted to say how great of an instructor Ty is with my son. He is a huge asset to Kids first! Love him! Friday 9:30 kinderbees Awesome!

I have been wanting to share praise for Tumble Bees for a long time. Each of the staff members are so caring and are always 100% paying attention to the kids. They are very knowledgeable about child development. They are friendly and positive. They each give the impression that they are having a great day every day! I have been so impressed by each person and I really appreciate the attention given to each of my kids. I think the programming is spectacular. It is developmentally appropriate and so carefully tailored to each age range. The equipment is amazing and we are always delighted by the new creative ideas!

I want to say “Thank You” to Ms Ashley S. for taking such good care of my daughter when she had a seizure at Tumble Bees. She reacted calmly and quickly. I can’t thank her enough!

We love your Tumble Bees program! The focus of the instruction is exactly right for our kids - strength, balance, trying your best. The teachers are outstanding too! We have had Miss Ladye and Miss Leah so far, and their positive energy and excitement for learning have made our son feel really special and proud of himself for the things he’s learned to do. Thanks for offering such a top-notch tumbling program. 

A Story...
Recently, my daughter, Carmen (4) has been asking me about what Heaven will be like. I told her it will be a perfect place that won’t have any “owies” - no tangles in her hair, broken toys, or mean people. She still didn’t seem satisfied with that answer, so she asked directly, “But will there be Tumblebees?? It’s so much fun, God just has to have that there!!” Obviously, you guys rank next to Godliness... He is smiling down on all of you, I’m sure! Thanks for all you do each day!
