Physical Fitness at Endeavor Montessori
Exercise and movement are built into the curriculum at Endeavor Montessori. Children begin and end the day with a short yoga session to enhance their strength, flexibility, body awareness, and more. In addition, children are given ample time outdoors to engage in structured exercise activities, as well as more freeform play, to develop their gross motor skills.
Yoga is an integral part of the Endeavor Montessori curriculum we teach our students a range of poses and proper breathing techniques to get the most out of this powerful and beneficial exercise. Not only do we begin and end each day with yoga stretches, but yoga mats are available all day for children who want to practice when they want. By learning yoga at an early age, our students gain a skill they can utilize throughout their life to build strength, reduce stress and promote mental wellbeing.
Children are not meant to be confined to desks for hours at a time and we take that fact to heart by making outdoor learning a regular part of the day. Playing outside allows children to learn social skills and spatial awareness while developing their physical strength. Activities range from free-form play where children learn to use their imagination and develop social skills to guided explorations that dig into science, geography and sociology.
