FUN START MOVE SMART: FUNDAMENTAL MOVEMENT SKILLS
Fundamental movement skills are essential to pave the way for development of more complex physical movement.
Best of all, they can be learnt!
Support your child's development of fundamental movement skills through this resource kit from ActiveSG! The kit is full of fun activity ideas that parents can try with their children at home!
Fundamental movement skills are divided into 3 main categories - Locomotor skills, Object Control Skills, Stabilty skills.
Locomotor skills move the body from one location to another. Many locomotor skills are used on a daily basis, as well as in many games and sports.
Find out more about locomotor skills!
Object control skills require your child to control and object using a part of the body or using an implement. There are two types of object control skills, propulsive (sending an object away) and receptive (receiving an object).

Stability is a key element required for every human movement. Stability is necessary for all locomotor and object control skills. Stability skills are focused on maintaining and acquiring balance, both static and dynamic.
