Early Learning Physical Education
The physical education program promotes large-muscle development, an appreciation of the natural world, and ways to socialize. Children play on a variety of playgrounds, in gymnasiums, on child-friendly equipment in classrooms, and in the Music and Movement Studio. The program is carefully tailored for each age level. Working closely with classroom teachers, the P. E. faculty help children acquire the skills of listening, following directions, and cooperating, incorporating class themes when appropriate. Children are encouraged to find success at their own ability levels in a safe, noncompetitive environment. The two gymnasiums feature first-class equipment and apparatus, managed by teachers with experience in the education of young children.
Physical education activities build strength, balance and coordination among preschoolers. Gross and fine-motor skills are strengthened.
In Junior Kindergarten, physical education activities continue to build strength, balance, and coordination. Gross and fine-motor skills are strengthened.
