The psychomotor development depends on the context in which the child lives, it allows the progressive control of the child and the progression of the awakening in the child. Psychomotor development is based on two aspects:
- global motor skills
- fine motor skills
The gross motor generates the general aspects of the body; the body diagram, the laterality, the special and temporal structuring. For example: knowing how to balance, stand up, get up, catch an object, grab an object, manipulate, fill, empty, put on, draw ... etc, so that physical exercises lead to better psychomotor coordination, they help the child to feel his body better and to use it as well as possible.
The development of gross motor skills greatly helps the development of fine motor skills, which allows fine actions of handling, grip and more, it promotes creativity in the child and gives it a better control of the fingers, hands and eyes.
The educator's mission is to adapt attitudes that favor and support the psychomotor development of the child, especially through a warm and safe relationship with the child who can make choices in the handling of objects and the exploration of space according to its psychomotor development.
