As a mother of two young children, my greatest desire for my children is to grow and develop optimally and ultimately, to be happy. Stemming from this, I founded my business to not only assist my children to develop through play, but also for other parents and children to benefit from it. To quote Diane Ackermann “Play is our brain’s favorite way of learning”.

Play is crucial to the development of children’s gross and fine motor skills. It is of the utmost importance in the early development of a child to develop the fine and gross motor skills, as well as hand-eye coordination, to equip children to achieve academically as well as physically later on in their school careers. Through play, children practice and perfect control and coordination of large body movements, as well as small movements of hands and fingers. Child care providers can support young children’s motor development by planning play activities that provide children with regular opportunities to move their bodies.
Gross motor skills involve control of the arms, legs, head, and trunk. Developing gross motor skills is important for every day functions like walking, running, climbing and general sporting skills such as throwing and catching. Child care providers can plan activities that encourage the development of gross motor skills.
Fine motor skills involve the careful control of small muscles in the hands, feet, fingers, and toes. Controlling the muscles of the tongue and lips in order to speak or sing is also a fine motor skill. Fine motor skills take longer to develop as it needs to be learned with practice. When given ample opportunities to play with a variety of interesting materials, young children will grow and develop at a satisfactory pace.
