Tumble Bees was designed and developed by wife and mum Jayne Bellwood, a British Gymnastics Level 2 Pre-School Coach. Realising that children learn so much better whilst having fun Jayne set about creating fun themes incorporating skills for life.
There are currently 18 different themes based around the early years FUNdamentals of gymnastics. Themes include Healthy Eating, Outer Space, Seaside, Number and Colours and so many more.
Action packed with songs and skills matching the themes. Children learn to roll, balance, count, co-ordinate, socialise and so much more.
We cater for all children 5 years and under starting with Teeny Tumble Bees for babies from 8 weeks to cruising and once walking confidently they can move onto our gymnastic sesssions.
Classes started February 2013 in the Leeds area and hundreds of children have passed through our doors. We are pleased to have our first franchisee on board in January 2017 opening classes in Kirklees and Calder regions.
We really care about the adults and children that attend our classes and work with everyone at their own pace, we really do treat everyone as individuals. Feedback has been great over the years but don’t just take our word for it, we have plenty of customer reviews.

Absolutely couldn't imagine life without tumblebees, I will recommend it til I'm blue in the face. Keena has always had mummy issues, in that if you didn't know better you'd swear the midwife never cut the umbilical cord.. I try turn the light off in hopes my shadow disappears haha. But since we have been going to tumblebees, we have a different kind of bond, she's beginning to get braver, more independent and imaginative, Jayne has helped her so much! She even leaves my knee to sit with Jayne! Lol. She practices all the time and tells everyone she sees about it, honestly, if you've got a walking child under 5 and a spare hour take them, you won't look back. I promise that
I would like to say a big Thank you to you Jayne for the 3 sessions me & Samuel have attended at Churwell so far. They have being great and Samuel seems to enjoy it and has being showing his certificate off to His dad and big sister. Even mummy has enjoyed the sessions 😉 . We are looking forward to after Easter to attend Tumble bees again. Also just noticed you do parties? May need to enquire more about that, we have Samuel's birthday coming up after Easter and he is wanting a party xx
My 4 year old loved Jaynes Classes, I thought he may have been too old for it at first but he absolutely loved them . He also made a really good connection with Jayne. I'm just sad we didn't get to do more as he is now starting school!
Tumblebees gives me the chance to spend some quality time with my grandson Harry. We joined last year and Harry was very shy at first, he enjoys the singing and he loves the parachute. His confidence has grown and he will join in some of the activities now, which is lovely to see. Jayne has lots of energy and patience and the children love her songs and activities. The sessions are a great way of getting children to exercise while having lots of fun.
Evie has really enjoyed her time at tumble bees, brilliant class and a fantastic teacher 🙂
Thank you Jayne! Rifqa has loved coming to your classes, they are fab! I've enjoyed watching her grow in confidence each week and seeing how she's beginning to use the skills she has learnt while we're out and about such as using the climbing frame in the park. We hope to join your classes again in the near future.
Re: Isla's 4th Gymnastics Birthday PartyA huge thank you to you both it was fab. Everyone commented on how good it was and to book you xxx
My little boy has been coming to Tumblebees for 2 years now. He loves it. The class is structured, but also relaxed. It's lots of fun and Jayne is fab!
Harrison loved his first session at tumble bees today....as newbies we were both made to feel very comfortable...the atmosphere was friendly and welcoming, as were the other mums and staff! Plus he hasn't stopped showing everyone his bee stamp! We can't wait for next week 😀
Isaac started Tumble Bees through his crèche at first direct, he did a couple of terms with them then when I went on maternity leave I switched to another class so we could go together. We've been doing it together for 16 months. He loves it! His little sister Lyla observed as a baby & started joining in as soon as she could walk. They both love Tumble Bees & Jayne. For me it is great that there is a group that they can take part in together as at most others they would be separated by age. I'll be sad when Isaac starts schools & has to stop going!
Toby has started doing the actions to the songs at home, very impressive that he's picking it all up at 15months old and considering he's soo shy haha, Brilliant xx
We loved it!! One of the best classes we have come to, think we will be booking on next term too 🙂
Caitlin really enjoyed it & had talked lots about her morning 🙂 thank you..x
We had our first session at tumble bees today & robbie really enjoyed it! He joined in and had ago at everything even song time which he isn't too confident with. Jane was really lovely. Looking forward to next week's session.
Hi Jayne! Just wanted to let you know that Kate and Alice thoroughly enjoyed Tumble Bees on Friday and can't wait for the next one!!!
My daughter loves coming here every week and I wouldn't dream of missing a term now. My baby starts the baby one today too
