Sue McLaren, a Curtin University Researcher and Director of Animal Fun, an evidence-based movement program, will facilitate this presentation for all parents, carers and grandparents of young children.

Some of the topics for discussion will include:

  • What are gross motor and fine motor skills and how do they interact?
  • What are the recommendations for daily physical activity, screen time and sleep?
  • Why are so many young children experiencing high levels of anxiety and what can we do about it?
  • What are the stages of play?
  • How does motor development impact a child's academic achievement?

All participants will leave with lots of hints and ideas for making the practice of movement skills more fun and engaging and a deeper understanding of the vital importance that having well developed motor skills plays in not only the physical health but also the mental health of young children.

Cost $5.00. Book and pay online.

Please note, the presentation will run for approximately one hour, and refreshments are included.
