Early Childhood: Physical Education

Physical Education

Mens sana in corpore sano. The ancient Roman ideal of “a healthy mind in a healthy body” is validated by current scientific evidence. Physical activity is necessary for a strong and healthy body. In addition, neuroscience supports the benefits to the brain and academic achievement as studies suggest a connection between physical activity and increased levels of alertness, mental function and learning.

CGS students enjoy daily physical education.  In preschool and kindergarten, this primarily consists of engaging in movement activities, dance and learning to play games.
