Preschool FAQ

Come learn with us, the Go-Go way!

Does my child need separate indoor shoes for Go-Go Preschool?

Yes, please send a pair of indoor shoes with your child on their first day of preschool. These shoes will be kept on-site to be used only during preschool hours.

What does my child need to bring each day to Go-Go Preschool?

  • One nut-free snack each day (for morning preschool)
  • Two nut-free snacks and a lunch (for full-day preschool)
  • A change of clothing (pants, shirt, underwear, socks) in their backpack at all times.
  • Please dress your child with the appropriate footwear and outerwear fit for the seasonal weather. Please note that in the winter months, your child will need snow pants, a warm coat, hats & mittens. When it is raining, please provide a raincoat, splash pants and rain boots.

What is your toilet training policy?

Children who attend Go-Go Preschool must be toilet trained before they begin classes as our centres are not equipped with diapering facilities. We understand that accidents will happen occasionally, and we will guide your child through proper clean up so that they are comfortable and clean.  An extra set of clothes can be kept in your child’s backpack.

How can I reach my child’s preschool educator?

Please contact the Go-Go main office at preschool@gogogym.com or 1-877-977-4646 and we can contact the on-site educator for you.

As Go-Go Preschool is a licensed daycare through the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, our program has a minimum of 1 educator for every 10 children.

My child is going to be absent from Go-Go Preschool. Do I need to notify Go-Go?
