Students at West River Head Start are taught to keep physically active, which the school believes is necessary for the growth and development of preschool children. Physical activity helps children develop motor skills and coordination. As preschool children run, climb, dance or stretch they build endurance, strength and flexibility, and develop stronger muscles, healthier lungs and hearts.
