CHALK Preschool and My Gym Children’s Fitness Center continue their strategic partnership, which is designed to serve the growing needs of the innovative Southern California-based preschool — and to parents and their children. The partnership brands the education centers as CHALK Preschool Energized by My Gym to its locations operating in Manhattan Beach, Venice and Westwood. In addition, it creates the infrastructure for expansion of additional locations in communities across California.
The newest CHALK Preschool will host a meet-and-greet open house at the school (700 E. Green St.) on Tuesday, June 20 from 5-7 p.m. The event will be an opportunity for families to meet the staff and find out more about the program. There will be free play in the My Gym classroom and the outdoor playground will be open to the children. Refreshments will be available.
“We are very excited to meet families in the community and offer them the opportunity to explore our new location,” said Doug Oleff, president of CHALK Preschool. “They can meet our teachers, who combine early childhood learning and the arts as they observe each child to ensure that their play experience is always a learning experience. We will be prepared to answer any questions and even pre-register children for the classes that best serve their needs.”
“CHALK’s overall vision is to support the development of the whole child across emotional, social, physical and cognitive domains. The My Gym-CHALK Healthy Lifestyles program focuses on honing strength, balance, coordination, agility and flexibility, while developing gross and fine motor skills. The program fits well into our core curriculum, which provides for the needs of the whole child.”
CHALK Preschool first began working with My Gym in 2014 when the school created a fitness program for young students, which included 30 minutes of fun-filled exercise daily. The curriculum was designed based on My Gym’s popular children’s fitness courses, which have won plaudits across the country. The CHALK-My Gym partnership represents the perfect synergy for families.
Cory Bertisch, CEO of My Gym Children’s Center said, “CHALK is one of the great success stories of preschool education. It has made a huge immediate impact on families in California since its first school opened in the state, carrying over the great success that it has enjoyed in other parts of the country. My Gym is thrilled to be partners with CHALK and we look forward to a long association with this remarkable preschool as it continues its expansion.”
