Young children are naturally very active and by providing a range of wheeled toys (bikes, scooters, haycarts), bats, balls etc and climbing and balancing equipment we encourage them to develop their gross motor skills which enable them to become more confident, agile and co-ordinated.


Fine motor control (fingers and hands) is developed through purposeful activities such as playing with playdough, clay, sand, water, operating the computer, cutting and sticking in creative workshop area, building with lego or completing puzzles. Children need well developed fine motor skills to control a pen/pencil when writing.
