The physical education program at Pincushion is broken down into three segments for the Elementary students, based on the time of year.

Segments 1 and 3 are conducted on-site by a certified physical education instructor from September through November and again March through May. Each week the children will enhance their cooperation and team building skills through activities that put their bodies in motion. Various sports and games are offered as well as an introduction to international outdoor games.

During Segment 2, November thru February, Pincushion teams up with Suburban Athletic Club to offer indoor swimming classes by certified swimming instructors. Weekly, the children are transported for swim class, where learning is customized based on individual ability. The goal is to have each child comfortable and confident in the water.
