Gross Motor Skills

Gross motor skills are important for enabling children to perform every day functions. The skills children require for optimum gross motor development include rolling, reaching, sitting, crawling, walking, climbing, balancing, running, jumping, catching, throwing and striking.

At Macquarie Hills Community Preschool children are given many opportunities to extend on and develop their gross motor skills. Activities include climbing and manoeuvring on equipment, obstacle courses, construction activities, group games, use of specific equipment for development, balance, strength, flexibility and endurance, movement and music activities, yoga and relaxation activities.

At MHCPS we keep our bodies moving.  It’s good for us and lots of fun!
