Developing Proprioceptive Skills

There is a reason why preschool play yards have monkey bars, rope ladders, scooters, and balance beams...These are all different activities to help support your child's proprioceptive input, knowing where their body is in relation to others & in space. This helps them have a sense of balance, a sense of self, as well as fine & gross motor coordination.

I love introducing a scooter around 2 years, particularly this @microkickboard as it really fosters a child's proprioception. My favorite child’s helmet is on my Amazon shop under outdoor gear (all profits go to @baby2baby ).

If you feel that your child is more clumsy, having difficulties with the above or isn’t able to hold hands while going around in a circle by age 4 for example, reach out to your doctor.
