Physical activity is important to many aspects of child health and development.
In young children, lack of physical activity is a risk factor for many health problems such as high blood pressure, weight gain, excess body fat, bad cholesterol, respiratory difficulties, cardiovascular diseases, and bone health problems. Moreover, the health benefits of physical activity extend well beyond physical health, having a positive impact on the domains of motor skills, psychological well-being, cognitive development, social competence and emotional maturity. We are thrilled to be active everyday at Seaboard Lane, but it is even more exciting when we have special guest visitors.
Coach Wells, from a local neighboring school, came to discuss with our KBC cadets the importance of physical education while in kindergarten and throughout life. He brought along some really cool sporting equipment and even explained the importance of good sportsmanship. Thank you Coach Wells!
