Why Book Gross Motor Outdoor Sessions?
Gross motor skills refer to the whole body movements and larger muscles your child needs for playing, walking, jumping, running, sitting, and various other physical activities. These skills are vital for stabilising your child’s core muscles. Gross motor includes eye-hand coordination that helps children learn how to throw, catch or kick balls and learn other activities such as riding a bike or swimming. They are also essential for everyday skills such as dressing, balance, getting in and out of bed, climbing into cars, carrying school bags, walking up steps and hills, and many other actions that require coordination, muscle tone, balance, and core.
Development of gross motor skills will additionally help in the development of fine motor skills. When kids are able to sit upright, it is easier for them to sit still and write, cut or draw. When they have sufficient strength and core to get through the school day as they get older, they will have a more positive experience overall.
Our gross motor outdoor sessions will help your toddler gain these vital skills in a way that is focused on play. Sessions run for an hour and 15 minutes. The sessions are started with our opening and warm-up songs. After that, toddlers can enjoy child-guided free play sessions, enjoying our equipment and getting some fresh air.
We ensure the safety and well-being of our kids at all times. Only 12 children are allowed per session and all activities take place in our large garden area. Spaces are limited due to government requirements and social distancing regulations.
