Hands to feet play – an important developmental milestone

Baby development

Hands to feet play is an important developmental milestone that we should encourage. Babies learn to move by layering each new skill on top of each other. They also use skills learnt in one position to help develop their abilities in another position. Hands to feet play will develop skills that will be useful when they learn to crawl, sit and in early walking. Most babies will learn to reach their knees by four months and by six months be busy exploring of their toes and feet.  This might even include putting their toes in their mouth!


Our practice philosophy is to promote strength and development through play and exercise. We provide a holistic and comprehensive approach that is backed by clinical experience. We can create a tailored individual program to be implemented at home, childcare or school to help meet your child and family’s goals.
