Physical Education

We believe in the whole child. We believe that each child is a transportation device for a unique brain. Our job is to teach them the skills necessary to treat life like an ATHLETIC EVENT, not a spectator sport – to enjoy their brain buggy! Every child is encouraged to participate and to learn and/or enhance the skills they already possess. At Leo Nickerson our high-powered Physical Education program is based on skill before score.
