Lunch, Recess, Learn

Our Services

We must make sure that there is recess and P.E. class in every school, getting kids outside for 60 minutes, every day.

Early Bird Fitness


Get the morning started right! What we call ‘0-hour Physical Education’ – there is no question that physical fitness to start the day directly impacts academic performance at schools. Schools that have implemented an optional fitness class in the morning have seen tremendous results! This also allows parents who are on a time crunch to drop their child off with a supervision and structured play in the morning. Students no longer have to wait outside of the gate they can walk straight unto the playground and engage in activities with a Coach. Sign Up >




CF Fitness Coach Service


Safe Structured Play Organized at Recess Time During one of the most hectic times of the day, CF Fitness coaches provide STEAM organized games and activities on the playground. OUR METHOD

  1. Review: We observe your current recess structure, assess the spaces used (both indoor and outdoor), and discuss current challenges at recess with teachers, lunch staff, paraprofessionals and everyone else involved.
  2. Collaborate: After a thorough review, we sit down with your school administration to define the goals of the program, map out the use of the spaces available more effectively, and plan the personalized implementation of the program.
  3. Implement: Before starting the program, we coordinate a professional development day with paraprofessionals and lunch staff to help define roles and explain the goals of the program. Following that, we are ready to begin the program!
  4. C.I.T.: CF Fitness will cross train older students in are C.I.T. (Coach in Training) leadership program to enhance game areas.
HOW IT WORKS
  • CF Fitness coaches (1-6 depending on schools needs) run organized activities during recess time in clearly defined areas of the yard.
  • Coaches offer several unique game and activity options, facilitating the participation of students with a wide range of interests. While many children choose to join the games, others can utilize the designated free-play area to coordinate games on their own (usually, ones they have learned from CF Fitness coaches!)
  • CF Fitness coaches help with the transitions from morning and lunch recess and recess back to the classroom.
THE RESULTS
  • Increased active participation and inclusion during recess.
  • Students return to the classroom ready to learn.
  • A sharp decrease in bullying and increases in social emotional learning behaviors.
  • Safer play during recess (fewer injuries).
