Physical development occurs as children learn how to use and take care of their growing bodies. It is a foundation for other learning and development. Children use their bodies for learning, by moving around and interacting with people and their environment. This learning trajectory look at gross motor skills, fine motor skills, sensory awareness, and physical health and self-care.
