Playtime/Recess

At Chance, students are fortunate to have facilities and a daily schedule that allow for movement during classroom activities, PE classes and recess.

Children are innately physically active. At recess, children will be running, jumping, throwing and kicking. It is what they do naturally … and they enjoy it! This physical activity improves learning, health and attention, and provides valuable opportunities for them to learn through movement.

For these reasons, regardless of weather, Chance students enjoy free play each day on the school’s outdoor play areas. Each child plays outside every day, except during heavy rain and thundering.

The Funroom (gymnasium) provides a dry area year-round; a smaller playground allows 2-year-olds to play on age-appropriate equipment in a designated outdoor area; a larger playground is nestled under trees and provides a unique setting for 3-year-olds through fifth-graders to have fun while being active in the great outdoors.
