Gross Motor Development Overview

As newborns, infants cannot control their body movements. At 4 months, most babies have some control of their muscles and nervous system; this is followed by a more rapid growth and development, with emerging skills of rolling over, sitting up, crawling and finally standing up and walking. As toddlers, jumping and walking up a single stair with a rail to much improved balance where climbing is a feature. As preschoolers, they can jump horizontally, gallop, hop on one foot, skip and ride a tricycle, as well as throw a ball overhand and catch a ball.
