Ongoing physical education is a regular part of our programming here at Pierce.

Sports, Creative Movement, Aerobics, Yoga, Gymnastics and Free Play help to enhance each child's overall growth and development.

Play is essential to the healthy physical and mental development of a child. Play helps kids exercise creatively and develop imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive and emotional strength. Children learn how to interact, face fears, cultivate confidence and enrich their competencies and resiliency - all through play.

Pierce's athletic facilities are the very best to be found bar none! Twenty seven acres of child-centered facilities are available to our students on a daily basis. There is something for everyone, and success for all! Meticulously groomed fields, sport courts and studios await our hustling students.

In addition to the daily program provided by our classroom teachers, our Gym Teacher is scheduled to meet with each class twice weekly. A wide range of athletic and recreational activities will be offered at age-appropriate levels.

Once the weather turns cold, we utilize our large indoor multi-purpose room and our indoor gymnastics studio for scheduled classes.

Our gym program hosts a wonderful "Winter Olympics" and culminates with a spirited day-long "Field Day" in the spring that parents are invited to attend.
