Activities for balance and motor coordination start at Nursery school, where a passive program is applied. The aim is to develop the integrative areas of the brain. This same goal continues later on with the active program, oriented towards hands-free gymnastics.
Primary Human development
The Primary Human Development program consists of three main activities for neuromotor maturation: crawling, creeping, and brachiation. It is mainly performed during preschool and lower elementary levels and aims to develop the necessary visual convergence for intellectual programs, improve breathing and as a result increase cerebral oxygenation, favor manual dexterity and strengthen cross pattern as a neurological scheme for a fluid movement.
Our Triathlon is organized every year to promote physical excellence among elementary and secondary school students - but we often have preschoolers participating. The challenge is to swim 400 meters, cycle 10K and run 5K. Parents have a key role as coaches. This event is not a competition among students, but a personal challenge. Each child that reaches his or her own goal is a winner. This is the most ambitious sports school event, to our knowledge, in Latin America.
