Gross Motor Skills: At Kiddie Corner Academy, there are many opportunities for children to work on gross motor skills. We provide the opportunities to practice walking in a straight line, walking backwards, jumping, throwing, catching, balancing on one foot and hopping. At Kiddie Corner Academy, our teachers will also encourage confidence and support so that children have the motivation to continue to develop new skills.
Fine Motor Skills: Kiddie Corner Academy teachers also support fine motor development by providing appropriate materials, such as playdough, crayons, markers, puzzles, etc. Children are encouraged to practice scribbling, and some of those scribbles will begin to resemble letters and words. Children are also given the opportunity to feed themselves during our family style meals, zip up or button their coats, and wash and dry their hands independently.
