This class is part of our BWell program and Healthy Lifestyles Initiatives. At Brookeside Montessori we support children and their families in their decision-making regarding health. All of our students are encouraged to participate in movement and exercise activities daily. We also have a school garden and teach cooking and nutrition classes.
In 2019 we started our Social Skills classes to help children with social and emotional skills. Mrs. Kayte Messinger, a Certified Health Coach, teaches this class. Some of the topics addressed in this class are how to make friends, how to resolve conflict, and dealing with our emotions. Through stories, games, and crafts children are learning important lifelong skills. For the 2020-2021 school year, the Social Skills class has become a Wellness class. Mrs. Messinger shares health topics, relaxation techniques, as well as important social skills.
