Discover the pivotal stages of your child's gross motor development with our comprehensive milestone chart! Gross motor skills are the cornerstone of your child's ability to interact with the world, involving large muscle movements that are essential for crawling, walking, and eventually running. Our visually engaging chart outlines key developmental landmarks from birth through six years, providing parents with a clear timeline of expected progress. Whether it's mastering the art of crawling by 9 months or skillfully hopping on one foot at age 4, you'll know exactly what to anticipate in your child's journey toward physical agility and coordination.
