Curriculum: Physical Development

All of our programs include physical education in addition to outdoor and gross motor development.  Children take part in gross motor activities daily.  Gross motor development will include running, jumping, using objects in different ways, balancing, etc.  Physical education takes place one or two times a week, depending on whether a child is registered in the half-day or full-day program.  The children are taught specific skills such as ball handling and eye-hand coordination, with a focus team building and healthy living.  Specialized coaches are brought in to teach skills and concepts associated with different sports in a fun, supportive and non-competitive environment. Yoga at SCELS is an excellent way to teach the children a universal method to self-regulate and ready their brains and bodies for learning.  Yoga is first introduced in the Nursery program and is practiced up to Grade Two.
