What to Expect

Metro Gymnastics Center’s Magic Years Preschool program (and a State Certified School) offers a stimulating early learning environment that fosters creativity in children. We provide varied learning experiences in a Christian based environment that will teach your child of God’s love for him during his or her formative years, and of his own self worth as an individual.

The Preschool Director carefully selects & prepares a curriculum that is developmentally appropriate for your preschool aged children. The purpose is to provide material & activities geared to the individual needs of each child. “Hands on” materials are a part of each of the activity areas in the classroom, encouraging children to explore, experiment, & investigate.


In a loving, nurturing environment, the children are given many opportunities for creative expression, socializations & oral communication with peers & adults. Small group & individualized instruction are also provided.


It is our hope that during the preschool years, each child will develop a life-long love for learning. We want to see each child reach their fullest potential & grow cognitively, physically, and socially. We hope to foster each child’s self-image & self-confidence and help him/her build a strong foundation for learning.

Parents are welcome to visit any time. We ask only that no more than two visits in a day in order to keep class continuity.

Field Trips

Children will participate in several field trips per year. We will transport children in the Metro vans. Parent volunteers are welcome and needed on our excursions and can follow behind the vans or meet us at the the destination. On occasion, a small cost will be involved for a trip.

Snack Time

We ask you to help your child provide snacks for the class about once every five to six weeks. The children look forward to providing snack. Please ensure the snack is nutritious and low in sugar with milk or sugar free juice to drink. The snack bag will go home with your child the day before to remind you. Due to state health regulations, all snacks must be store purchased.

Birthdays & Special Celebrations


A child’s most important celebration is his/her birthday, and at Magic Years we want to help make their day special. We will celebrate each child’s birthday on or near the actual date. If a child’s birthday falls in the summer months, it will be celebrated with a half birthday approximately midyear. Parents are asked to provide a healthy snack for their child’s class on the day of their birthday celebration. It will be served at our regular snack time. Parents are welcome to participate.

Special Celebrations

Several times a year we will have special events in which we will invite parents/families to participate. We have had such celebrations as Dad's Afternoon Bowling with their Pre-Schooler, Family Fall Festival, Thanksgiving Feast, Christmas Program, Mother’s Day Tea/Celebration and end of the year Graduation/Parties.
