YEP! RECESS

Recess time offers students cognitive, physical, emotional and social benefits.  It provides students with time to play, imagine, think, move, and socialize.  After recess, children are more attentive and better able to perform cognitively.  Recognizing the importance of recess and lunch time, YEP! Recess offers a program located at 20 Hayward public elementary schools (see list of participating schools below).  It is open to all students who attend participating schools.

During the academic year, YEP! Recess activities are held during school Monday through Friday for K-6th grade students.  Our goal is to enable Hayward children to meet the State of California physical fitness standards and build life-long healthy eating and exercise habits.

To build life-long healthy eating habits, the YEP! Recess program integrates Fit for Learning activities.  Fit for Learning seeks to decrease calorie consumption and increase consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables through easy to implement classroon activities.  To achieve healthy exercise habits among students, YEP! Recess incorporates Playworks activities.  Playworks builds the culture of play during recess time so that kids feel safe and included.  Playworks introduces games that encourage kids themselves to take ever-increasing responsibility for the quality of play and for each other.  Ultimately, the activities foster greater independence and leadership amongst children.
