General School Mission

"Our goal at Bellingham Bay Gymnastics & Pre-School is to help our students become enthusiastic learners. We offer an age appropriate curriculum that encourages children to build a foundation for life-long learning through purposeful play and exploration. The curriculum is designed to allow each student the opportunity to experience a nurturing environment, establish trust, make friends and develop cooperation skills. As educators our aim is to help your pre-schooler experience pride and self-confidence, develop independence and self-control, and have a positive attitude toward life and school.
