Studies show that preschool gymnastics enhances cognitive development and academic readiness essentials such as visual differentiation, hand-eye coordination, and sensory discrimination. So every day, students at The Wonder Years will experience a specialized gymnastics class.

Emerging science about brain development of young children has now proven what coaches and teachers have long understood —that movement and play are essential for maximizing intellectual and emotional development as their brains mature. After expert coaches lead students through their gymnastics class, our experienced preschool teachers will guide students through math, language, literacy, arts, science, Spanish, and social-emotional growth activities. Field Trip Fridays will be a monthly occurrence for students and families to explore new places and form friendships with classmates.
