FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How many classes should my child attend?


The Mindful You Curriculum is designed to be completed in 3 months with your child attending class once a week. This is so your child learns and retains new skills while in the program. Mindful Movement is best when done weekly to establish bonds with peers and to learn
different skills, poses, and games. When it is all done, pick another curriculum and learn new
skills. If your child is struggling, no problem! They can redo a class. That’s all part of skill building and cultivating growth.




How can I keep what my child's learning in the classes at home as well?


Parent/caregiver involvement is most important in helping your child retain the information
learned at Mindful You LLC. You can also purchase the very tools we use in order to keep
consistency at home, such as the Time In Tool Kit by Gen Mindful. By observing and taking an interest in your child’s learning you will be able to help their tree grow.




What should my child wear?


Children should wear comfortable clothing and slip resistant socks. Shoes are not allowed in the play space. We kindly ask that children wear a CDC recommended mask for services.




Can I stay and watch?


Sadly, no. Due to COVID-19 limitations, we ask that parents/caregivers observe their child’s learning and play from outside. This is our effort to slow the spread. You can even step away and come back when the lesson is over. We ask that you be mindful of our learning and growing opportunities by limiting distractions.




When is my payment due?


Tuition is due at the start of each month. Tuition is invoiced through Brightwheel. You can pay on your own or take out the guess work and set up autopay.




How do I make a payment?


Tuition is accepted online through your Brightwheel account.




What changes should I expect in my child?


Parents/caregivers should expect to see a child who is learning to name their emotions. A child who is developing social skills adequately will show empathy, share things, and play well with others. Overall, the goal is a calmer, kinder child.




Time Out vs. Time In


Time out provides isolation, loneliness, rejection, and is scary. No new skills are learned to replace unhelpful behavior. Time ins are a comforting and cozy corner where a child can learn new skills and emotion regulation. It’s a place for your child to learn to notice, name, and understand and better manage their emotions through use of skill building and Peacemakers in the Time In Toolkit created by Gen Mindful.
