Jackie''s has been a part of South Austin for over 33 years, Once you join the Jackie''s Family you will not want to leave! Children are taught in a very loving atmosphere where quality instruction is a must! Jackie''s has produced many award winning gymnasts and dancers as well as acedemic scholars! The swim program is taught in a indoor heated pool year round!

You look at Jackie''s and it''s hard to compare it to any other school around, It''s so different. I agree, it isn''t a brand new building, bright and shiny, but they offer so much more than anyone else ! My oldest daughter started going to Jackie''s at age 3, she was in the MMO program, it helped her develop her motor skills, as well as her social skills... At age 6, she performed in Jackie''s big recital and it was incredible ! My heart was racing, she was so young, yet together and confident, I watched her perform with tears in my eyes, I felt so proud : what a life experience for her ! Thank you so much, Jackie ! My other daughter started at Jackie''s at age 2, she is now almost 3, a little fish who loves water and swims beautifully under water, the cutest ballerina, quite a gymnast and, last but not least, she LOVES Jackie''s, she goes part time but asks everyday if today is :"go to yackie''s? Now? ...Yes, maman, yackie''s ?" Need I say more ?
