Playground Moments

       What’s your favorite playground activity?

Physical activity has plenty of benefits, and an infinite variety of ways to participate.

At Crossroads Center for Children, physical activity is integral to every classroom’s daily routine. Physical Education time and recess are intertwined and each of the eleven classrooms go out to the playground daily when the weather allows it. Sometimes classrooms take the bikes out and ride, or go for walks on the grounds, as well. Scooter races, obstacle courses, basketball and soccer are some of the other physical activities students are learning to participate in on the premises of Crossroads Center for Children. The days when the weather is too bad for outside, classrooms use their time in the gym to be active and there are many active tasks in the classrooms and hallways occurring all day long as well.

Our kids feel the playground is tops.

Active times are the favorite times for many children at our school, and if you asked them what their favorite place of all is to be active, you’d probably hear a resounding declaration of the playground. That’s what we hear.

The playground at Crossroads Center for Children is full of fun spaces and opportunities for the students to run, jump, climb, and otherwise move their bodies. Here, students share their smiles as they enjoy engaging in their favorite playground activities.


Sand-play is awesome.

Thanks to Bellevue Builders, lack of sand can’t slow us down this summer. Their donation of ten fifty pound bags this week was awesome. Thanks to our outside volunteer crew for filling up the sand boxes and to the teachers outside at the time for helping. The children were wonderful about helping to spread the sand.

We all agree that physical activity is so important and also that it’s fun! So, what’s your favorite thing to do on the playground? We’d love your comments!
