Motor Skills

Motor skill development (also referred to as physical development) is an important part of early childhood development. Large motor skills include learning how to control those bigger muscles in a child’s body which allows young children to master such actions as walking, running, throwing, jumping, and walking across a balance beam. Fine motor skills includes the development of those small muscles in a child’s body such as those in the hands and wrists. Fine motor development and eye-hand coordination are the foundations for mastering such skills as writing, gluing, painting, cutting, sewing, and weaving.
