Healthy Families, Healthy Children, Healthy Schools, Healthy Communities in a Healthy World.
We believe that learning involves the whole body. Children learn best when they have the freedom to move and choose what they want to learn.
Children should not sit in front of technology or only stay seated at a table all day to learn. At our center, playing and being physically active are important. We use a whole-body apporach to learning, where students use physical activity in the classroom to explore and learn. Research shows that movement promotes better blood flow to the brain. Movement increases confidence, self-esteem and mood. This is why we promote hands-on, active learning. At the same time, we want our students to grow their athletic skills, enjoy fitness activities and become physically literate. Our philosophy is all about moving to learn and learning to move.
