Physical Development

This is a crucial area in your child’s development as many children learn best through physically active play. We plan activities inside and out that will develop your child’s coordination, balance, control and movement. Activities that will raise your child’s confidence and ability to take safe, manageable risks and that will help your child to feel the positive benefits of being healthy and active.

Outside your child will be working on a large scale and will develop confidence in climbing, balancing, running, skipping, manoeuvring and steering etc. They will also develop body co-ordination and spatial awareness. The fine motor skills necessary for controlling tools and manipulating objects are developed through construction toys, cutting, threading, sewing, woodwork and cookery experiences as well as through tactile materials like dough and clay.
