Building a business around sports and fitness for toddlers and preschoolers sounds like a fun idea, but is it really something you can do? Absolutely. Not only is it a truly fun business, it can be a rewarding and profitable one as well.
The JumpBunch philosophy is simple. To kids, sports are an opportunity to play, and play is FUN! We've never met a child that didn't want to play and have fun, and it's likely you haven't either.
Making something fun for kids is also a great way to teach them. Through sports, we can teach children the value of being active very early and establish a lifelong path to fitness. Fun is the key to teaching these important lessons, and that is really the story of JumpBunch.

Plus, with children not in school, additional seasonal programs offering parents ways to keep their kids positively engaged and active are now available.
