About Discovery Preschool

Now enrolling for the 2020/2021 school year!

Gymco Discovery Preschool is a unique and innovative way for young children to learn. The Discovery Preschool approach combines the power of physical and cognitive learning to help young brains develop by using the latest research and science. Academic education is complemented by physical movement, which boosts young minds and primes them for learning. Students will be empowered to reach their full learning potential in Gymco’s classroom and gym environments.

At Gymco Discovery Preschool, students learn to:

  • Build social & emotional development
  • Shape language development
  • Develop fine and gross motor skills
  • Discover problem-solving ability
  • Explore letters, numbers, colors, school readiness
  • Learn self-control, listening & taking turns
  • Build interpersonal relationships
  • Develop understanding and articulating emotions

Since Gymco’s preschool class size is small, our preschool classes fill up quickly. Still, we have a waitlist, and if openings are available, your preschooler can be enrolled at any time of the year. Gymco offers preschool year-round and we offer a special summer preschool through June, July & August. Contact us to save your spot in our preschool program!
