Come learn ways to help children develop the essential building block of gross motor skills in fun ways.

About this event

Large (gross) motor skills are developed as we learn and practice movements like walking, running, jumping, climbing and balancing. Large muscle development involves the larger, stronger muscle groups of the body. In early childhood, it is the development of these muscles that enable the baby to hold his/her head up, sit, crawl and eventually walk, run and skip.
