Healthy Development

Healthy living is an important component of the Montessori curriculum.  Research shows that healthy active kids foster excellent brain development and promotes good heart habits for their future.  At WAMCS, we have implemented opportunities for our kids to take "Heart/Brain Breaks".  Using the American Heart Associations recommendations for heart smart activities we have developed monthly themed heart/brain breaks for our students.  If you are interested in volunteering your time to support any of these heart/brain breaks, please contact your child's teacher.  Our themed heart/brain breaks are:

September Aerobics
October Hiking/Walking
November FlexibilityStretching
December Yoga
January Indoor Games
February Balance / Tai Chi
March Go Noodle
April Strength / Aerobics
May Outdoor Games
