Preschool Prep Available
As experts in early child development, My Gym Santa Rosa understands the impact preschool or pre-kindergarten education has on children’s emotional, social, and cognitive development. In our commitment to educate the whole child, we offer the “My Gym Preschool Prep Program”.
Preschool Prep focuses on imparting to children the skills needed to excel in preschool and beyond. Our program allows students to transition into preschool and kindergarten with confidence, curiosity, and a love for learning. Students attain these qualities through our award-winning My Gym fitness curriculum, arts and crafts, stimulating small group and independent activities, and basic academic preschool instruction. This 3-hour program for 2 ½ - 5 years focuses on making learning fun and exciting in the familiar and nurturing atmosphere of My Gym. We will utilize our studio space for learning along with small amounts of gym time and our outdoor space. The student to teacher ratio is approximately 7 to 1. Prerequisite for this program is completion of a minimum of one month of My Gym classes, in Terrific Tots or Mighty Mites.
Ages: Preschool Prep is for potty trained children 2.5 - 5 years.
Schedule: Preschool Prep classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:00am-1:00pm. Families may choose one or two Preschool Prep classes per week. All options include unlimited Practice & Play!
Availability: Please inquire.
Food: Parents send a healthy sack lunch and water bottle for their child. Please notify us of any food allergies. We are a nut-free facility and kindly request your compliance.
Cost: One class per week = $160/4 weeks. Two classes per week = $288/4 weeks. (When offered, three classes per week = $360/4 weeks.) Tuition paid via recurring automatic payments, or in advance for 12 weeks.
$30 materials fee (per child) due with initial enrollment.
My Gym Lifetime Membership required if not already a member (one time $75 fee per family).
Students maintaining Preschool Prep in addition to a 50-60 minute My Gym, Dance and/or Ninja classes receive a discounted rate.
One additional class each week = $41.50 per 4 weeks. This is half price of our regular tuition rate.
Unlimited gym/dance/Ninja = $83 per 4 weeks.
Note that if you would like your child to dance classes, we ask that you make that your primary class then do unlimited classes in others. Our dance program requires consistent attendance due to seasonal performances.
Makeups: Unlike typical preschool programs, we do offer makeups! Children enrolled in Preschool Prep can makeup up absences in either the other Preschool Prep time-slot, in a Friday night drop off event (age restrictions apply), or in My Gym classes. 2 gym classes is the equivalent of one missed preschool prep day. We will allow makeups for one absence per month for children enrolled in one class per week, two absences per month for children enrolled in two classes per week. Absences need to be made up within 6 weeks of when occurred, otherwise they expire.
Prerequisite: Completion of a minimum of one month of My Gym classes in Terrific Tots or Mighty Mites and potty trained.
Other: Preschool Prep is a drop off program. The student to teacher ratio will be approximately 7 to 1. Classes will be taught by My Gym staff. We will utilize our studio space for learning along with small amounts of gym time and outdoor space. Children should be potty trained.
Summer Bonus: While we have Summer Camp happening (June-mid August), we invite our Preschool Families to take advantage of extra My Gym! Families maintaining preschool enrollment during summer in one preschool day receive one complimentary drop-off event, enrolled in two preschool days and receive two drop-off events. Also, we invite our Preschool families to bring one guest to Practice & Plays all summer for no extra charge.
