About the Movement & Games Position
Explorations in movement are an integral part of the entire school day. A multitude of movement activities enliven morning lessons, subject classes, field trips and after-school programs. Movement classes, as such, are carefully designed to support the overall student’s development, and it is important that the activities offered throughout the day are consistent. We provide a holistic approach to movement education by promoting imagination, enlivened fun-filled games while building and developing a child’s movement capacities. By building a strong movement foundation based on cooperation rather than competition the students in these early stages of development can experience activities for the fun of it.
