The definition of “Fine Motor” is orderly progression that is deliberate and controlled movements requiring both muscle development and maturation of the central nervous system.
We need to be aware of the skills of the young child and plan activities accordingly.
We provide a Milestone List of fine motor control.
All young children can be naughty, defiant and impulsive from time to time which is perfectly normal. However, some children have extremely challenging behaviours that are outside the norm for their age. Some disorders covered in this workshop are tics, stuttering, anxiety disorders, disruptive behaviour, sleeping problems, oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder and ADHD.
Even with the electronic age, children still love blocks.
Not only children. Look how many adults build with Lego. Lego comes out with new block sets all the time.
So we ask ourselves what children learn from blocks apart from seeing how high they can stack them before they fall down.
Children develop large motor control from lifting and carrying blocks, stretching to place a block up high, and returning the blocks to the shelves when they have finished. They develop fine motor skills by turning around the small blocks to fit one on top of the other, or set up animals and people, or roll a ball or marble down a ramp. Co-ordination. Balance. Spatial orientation. Body awareness, hand-eye coordination, sensory exploration, and visual perception.

It is essential that caregivers working with children have an understanding of child development and the needs of children. By observing children carefully to note their progress, involvement and enjoyment, as well as focusing on the attainment of predetermined outcomes, caregivers should be able to plan a more appropriate curriculum that supports children’s development according to individual needs.
