Physical Development and Movement

Children develop physical control through development of their gross and fine motor skills. Gross motor skills are developed by nurturing the long-term health and well-being and supporting physical and cognitive development. Fine motor skills are developed with opportunities to complete tasks that increase movement and control of fingers and hands. We promote these skills through the activities and opportunities to increase co-ordination of large and small body movements which we provide in our well-resourced indoor and outdoor areas.
