At Lord of Life Lutheran School we value the role of play in the development of the child.  That is why we ensure 60 minutes of play a day.  This is accomplished through 20-minute recesses three times a day.  Furthermore, this enables our students to have a healthy, brain break throughout the structure of the school day.  

A great recess is is an essential building block for healthy school environments that help kids thrive socially, emotionally, and physically.
Play is the brain’s favorite way of learning.
Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is not a luxury, it is a necessity.
Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn.
