Partner Programs


We are pleased partner with Gymboree to offer two great class formats, The Gym Play and Learn class or the Open Gym Class.

DSACT members are able to attend ONE CLASS per week.  Gymboree class enrollment must be arranged in advance by the parent/ guardian.

When you contact Gymboree, be sure to tell them you are a member of the Down Syndrome Association of Central Texas. It’s also a good idea to have the online schedule in front of you when you do this.

Once they have confirmed a spot for you in one of their classes at the location of your choice it’s VERY IMPORTANT to complete the DSACT program registration form.  You can do so by clicking on the RSVP button at the top of this page.
