Stay tuned. New campus coming soon - Downtown Calgary!

Developing fine motor skills plays a big part in fostering independence in young children, and an even bigger part in helping to shape the person that they will become in the future.

 

A future in art and design is born out of creativity. Fine motor skill activities such as weaving, manipulating clay and working with paints and brushes allow children to immerse themselves in these creative experiences.

A future in architecture and construction can blossom from a child’s skill in using a wide variety of materials to build. When children’s fine motor skills are developed, they are able to make complex creations with the use of blocks of all sizes, with a lesser chance of dropping materials or knocking things over by mistake.

Academic endeavours can be achieved through fine motor skills by the way of brain development. Hand-eye coordination and multi-sensory experiences which combine touch and sight, and speech and language development, are all related to fine motor skills, and help spark the pursuit of knowledge and learning.

In this Knobless Cylinders activity, a child develops fine-motor movements, concentration, hand-eye coordination, and visual perception of dimension to maximize creativity and imagination!

Above a child is engaged in a fine motor skills activity as she uses her little fingers to lock and unlock the devices. Not only does this help in exercising cognitive flexibility, it also helps in building confidence, as children experience success with unlocking each device.

As children improve their fine motor skills they develop their independence, creativity and imagination. They are able to access a wider source of learning activities, and social experiences while maximizing their brain development.
