At Durham Montessori School and Daycare, we do not just focus on the child’s developing minds but also enhance their large motor skills through regular exercise which in turn, is essential to their overall health and well being. Children learn important basic skills such as special awareness, balance, and stability. They learn ball skills such as rolling, bouncing, throwing and kicking and how to be an important team player while having a great deal of fun!
Movement is also an integral part of the prepared environment where children work on activities throughout the classroom and participate and interact in songs and games during circle time. Children are also taken outside to our playground twice a day for an hour at a time.
