Physical activity is a vital part of the development of the whole child. Physical activities and instruction are a part of every day at Bayside Montessori. We promote 40 minutes of physical activity every day through the use of the gymnasium, our playground and various parks and ball fields that surround our school.
The children’s outdoor play area provides our students with the opportunity to exercise and socialize. It is a park-like space with a garden, trees and a climbing structure. There is a path along which the students can draw using sidewalk chalk. This Montessori outdoor environment fosters respect and appreciation for nature and there are plenty of opportunities for running, jumping, bubble blowing and discovering.
