Parkour Classes Begin at Schools for Early Childhood Education

This week APK is proud to present another historic moment for Parkour. We began programs in two Carroll County Maryland Elementary schools for Early Childhood Education Parkour. In addition to equipment which will be used in as part of the their physical education program, we gave them lesson plans which will help not only develop physical literacy skills, but also teach and encourage the values of parkour. We all know that movement and physical creativity lead to more well rounded students who also achieve more in their academics when they are given the opportunity to play more.
