At Keys, the spirit of play is alive.

Morning and lunch recess provide students with essential down time, allowing time to play, imagine, move, reflect, rest, and socialize. This break from structured learning is vital to a child’s cognitive, emotional, physical, and social well-being. Children make choices about how to spend their time – engaging in imaginative play, participating in sports and games, curling up with books in the library, creating during Maker Time, and chatting with friends.

"On the yard I watched a disagreement erupt between two kindergarteners playing tag. Before the situation could escalate, the boys put out their fists and used rock, paper, scissors to reach a decision. I love that at Keys students are given tools to resolve their conflicts independently." Maren, Lower School Math Specialist
