Fun Moves - Teaching fundamental movement skills in the early years

Fundamental movement skills are the building blocks of movement. They are a specific set of gross motor movements that involve different body parts such as the feet, legs, trunk, hands, arms and head, and are essential for children’s participation in sport and physical activity throughout life.

These Fun Moves videos were developed by the Central Coast Local Health District Health Promotion Service to support early childhood educators teach preschool children the 13 fundamental movement skills.
