Exercise Aids Growth

When children enter the toddler stage (between 12 to 24 months), it’s normal for growth to become slower but consistent. Their appearance will change from rounded baby features to the development of muscle needed for running around and playing. In this stage, toddlers need to be active to grow out of the baby stage and into young children. In this stage, exercise will aid their growth by helping them develop stronger muscles and bones.

Develop Motor Skills

Another significant milestone for toddlers is the development of their motor skills. These include skills like object control, independent movement, and stability. Exercise can help them promote these skills while in a fun environment that comes naturally to them. The toddler stage is also an excellent time to set the foundation for enjoying exercise and for children to have good habits when they’re older.

Work on Social Skills

Physical activities are also an excellent way for children to work on their social skills. Exercise classes present many opportunities for children to interact with others, learn how to play as a team, and collaborate in organized activities. Lastly, exercise classes can teach them that working together is a much more efficient way to achieve their goals than doing it alone.

Exercise for toddlers is essential in many aspects of their development. That’s why the experts at Stretch-n-Grow in Winston-Salem, NC have exercise classes for children of all ages.
