What is your school’s approach to physical education?


Instead of isolating exercise to one specific class, UMA integrates gross motor development into the classroom. 3-6 year old children get bursts of energy where they just need to run, climb, or throw something. Instead of telling students to stop and calm down, our teachers respect their need to move and give students exercise options, bean bags to throw, or things to climb on to “get their energy out.” Recess also provides children running, jumping and climbing time also.
