Physical Development

Physical development in children follows a directional pattern:. Large muscles develop before small muscles. Mother Goose Time curriculum actively engages a child’s mind and body through multidisciplinary activities that invite children to touch, climb, crawl, and manipulate
objects in their surrounding environment.

The STEM School provides a variety of ways to explore physical development. If it is 30 degrees or above we enjoy exploring our outdoors. In our neighborhood we take one mile nature walks to a playground park. The MLK park provides a playground, where our students continue to practice their social and imaginary skills as they make friends and swing and slide. Our second outdoor space is a block east of our school where our students visit the garden and help maintain our community garden bed. On our grounds our students take care of our chickens, and our vegetable garden. We also teach YOGA and Meditation strategies to help our children with self regulation.
