Locomotor skills are the foundation of large muscle movements and the cornerstone of gross motor coordination. There are eight basic locomotor movements which include: walk, run, hop, jump, gallop, skip, leap and slide.
Research suggests that once a child can walk and run comfortably then he/she is ready to learn the other 6 movements. Research from the University of Michigan suggests that these skills should be learned between 2-7 years.
