Lower School Curriculum
A child needs some physical exercise every day. Starting from Kindergarten we organize trips by shuttle bus to the 92nd Street Y for swimming with qualified instructors and on another day either gymnastics or a team sport. As stated, the main thrust of our education is character development and team sports offer ample opportunities for children to learn to develop their characters. We want to see their courage and confidence grow as well as their recognition that by being a team player we all go further than we could go individually.
In addition to the bi-weekly trips to the 92nd Street Y, the children go to Central Park to exercise, sometimes even twice in a day. From Second Grade on a Hatha Yoga class is offered once a week.
