The foundation of success in life is good health. At RHMS Montessori students learn to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.
The primary goal of our Physical Education program is to develop awareness of and appreciation for the importance of fitness and optimal physical health. Our program is designed to create a positive, non-competitive environment for our children so they may progress naturally at their own pace. Children are challenged to perform to the very best of their physical ability to enhance their flexibility, coordination, gross motor skills, balance, and rhythm.
Through group exercises, children develop better listening skills, cooperation skills, and the ability to follow directions. They learn how to respect one another’s space, interact physically, and participate with other children in a safe environment.
Children are exposed to a variety of sporting games and activities including team building exercises. Students learn the basics of catching and throwing, aiming, yoga, stretching, and more. Children learn to appreciate the benefits of being physically active and discover their own natural athletic ability.
