Fine motor skills cannot develop smoothly without the concurrent development of gross motor (large muscle) skills. In fact, typically, development proceeds in a cephalo-caudal (head to toe) and proximal-distal (moving from the body parts closest to the trunk to those furthest away).
Comfort with gross motor skills is very important for young children. Not only do the gross motor activities of crawling and walking give children important independence, but strong gross motor skills allow children to interact comfortably and maneuver with ease.
At SAI International School, we understand that children are active and always on the go. Encouraging them and fostering confidence in your children to move about and understand the dexterities of their bodies gives them a sense of freedom. The GREEN of gross motor skills lends the holistic dimension of development to a childís growth.
