Kid Fit Program
Toddlers through Grade 3
The ultimate goal of the our Kid Fit program is to assist all children along the path to lifetime physical fitness, which aligns with our holistic mission. The benefits of this journey are many: health, longevity, positive body image, improved overall self-esteem, and increased energy and concentration in all areas.
Swim and Gym Program
Preschoolers through Grade 3
Cosmic Montessori School partners with Rush Copley Healthplex to provide and exciting opportunity for our students ages 3 to 9 years old. This program is offered one day a week throughout the school year. Students are driven by school faculty to the Rush Copley HealthPlex where they participate in a 90 minute program. The staff at Rush Copley are all Red Cross certified instructors, which means that your children are always in safe hands.
The swim portion of the program is in a temperature controlled pool and then the students have the option to tumble and actively play in the children’s gym. Students in Level 1 explore the water and learn to be comfortable in aquatic environments. They will also learn the basic ideas of floating and airway control. As they progress they begin learning different types of locomotion as the foundation for learning coordinated swim strokes and how to tread water. Safety skills will be reinforced.
