Developing Fine Motor Skills

Fine motor skills are the small muscle movements, which occur in the figures, in coordination with the eyes. A large portion of our activities at the nursery, such as sticking, cutting, play dough, gluing, and threading, are aimed at working and refining these muscle movements.Research has shown a clear connection between fine motor skills and cognitive development, which can be seen in the connection between the areas in the brain responsible for cognition and fine motor skills. Research has found that these movements are related to later success in math, reading and science related subjects. By working on these and developing these we strengthen this connection and better prepare them for entering school.
