Q: Are there any requirements before enrolling in Preschool Prep?
A: Please make sure your child is able to separate easily during drop-off, must be able to age-appropriately communicate their ideas, needs, feelings, and is ready for a group setting with peers. Being able to use the bathroom independently is expected; we will assist if needed though. Wearing a Pull-Up is encouraged during Preschool Prep if the child is in between stages. The student-to-teacher ratio is important for the children so we limit enrollment to 16 children per day.
Q: Do parents stay or leave?
A: Preschool Prep is a drop-off program. We recommend drop-off at 5 minutes before class begins so we can begin on time. Arrive five minutes before class ends to ensure on-time pickup.
Q: Is this program only offered during the school year?
A: Preschool Prep runs year-round. Join anytime!
Note the annual gym closure dates on holidays (New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, December 24, 25, 26, New Year's Day and camp weeks)
Q: Will you use lesson plans?
A: Yes, the Preschool Prep program incorporates structured My Gym class elements and early-education curriculum. Every week, the gym setup will be different as well as the activities planned for Preschool Prep.
Q: Will there be time to play in My Gym?
A: Yes. The children will have the opportunity to freely explore in the gym before Preschool Prep begins and after our skill stations. Plus, there will be time to explore in the gym before parents pick up.
Q: What does my child need to bring to Preschool Prep?
A: Please bring a spill-proof water bottle and a healthy snack. Label everything with your child's name. Dress in play clothes. Children participate barefoot. We recommend that younger children bring a small bag (clearly labeled with their name) with an extra pair of clothes/diapers/Pull-ups/wipes.
Q: My child has allergies. Can we work together?
A: Absolutely. We'll note the allergies and take precautions. Please write your child's name on the snack and notify the My Gym coach. Play-doh will be used in Preschool Prep, so please notify us if your child needs an alternate brand or bring your own. My Gym is not an official peanut-free facility, but we try to be. Please tell a coach how we can assist your child in having the best experience ever.
Q: Can a different adult pick up my child?
1. Notify a My Gym coach with the adult's name, relationship to the child and phone number.
2. Upon pick-up, a My Gym coach will verify the adult's name with their driver's license as well as obtain their signature on the sign-out sheet.
(Parents are welcome to leave a car seat in the office).
Q: What happens if my child misses a Preschool Prep session?
A: First, please call or text (858) 352-6085 and leave a message or email us at email@example.com. Then, the child will be marked absent and will have 14 days to schedule a make-up. Based on availability, we'll schedule a make-up on a different day of Preschool Prep -or- the child can attend a My Gym class. Let's brainstorm to schedule the make-up. Please do not show up unannounced on a different day because we prepare materials for the children on the roster, we monitor attendance due to limited space in the classroom and would like to maintain a low student-to-teacher ratio. No refunds, no store credit and no prorated amounts are issued due to a missed Preschool Prep session.
Q: Do you have a late pickup policy?
A: We sure do! Check it out here: mygym.com/lajolla/articles/20371
