Fundamental movement skills are important to the motor development of children’s physical, cognitive, and social growth. There are four categories in which the fundamental skills fit for under-fives:  Stability and Balance, Manipulative, Locomotor, Movement and Body Awareness. For over-fives we just focus on stability and balance, manipulative and locomotor skills, as we would hope they have a good awareness of their body by then.
