Little Bugs Club is designed to help your Childs development through movement and make it fun packed and interesting.
Physical activity is fundamental to the early development of children and I feel passionately about promoting the benefits of regular and varied physical activities for preschoolers to help them to maximise the benefits of developing gross motor skills.
Gross motor skills - why needed, how to help them
The skill of movement:
Balance - Static and Dynamic
Jumping, Hopping, skipping
Throwing, catching, kicking, hitting
Fine Motor skills and grip strength
Bilateral Co-ordination and integration
Proprioception and body awareness
Direction Change and spacial awareness
Strength - Core stability and muscular strength using body weight
Elements of fitness : muscular strength, flexibility, stability and posture, control and coordination, stamina, speed, balance, agility
Gross motor skills : roll, sit up, crawl, walk, run, jump, leap, hop, skip
Cross body movements
All children develop at different speeds and later development is not a solid indicator of future ability, but if you do have any concerns about your Childs development please speak to your health professional.
