Physical Development: Toddler Motor Skills Milestones


Watching your little one grow is a magical experience, and each new milestone is a cause for celebration!  Between the ages of 1 and 3, your toddler’s physical development is progressing by leaps and bounds. They’re constantly on the move, exploring their world and learning new skills.

Here at Petits Poussins Dumbo, a daycare in New York, we understand the importance of nurturing a child’s development through play-based activities. That’s why our childcare program incorporates age-appropriate experiences that help toddlers develop their gross motor skills, like climbing, running, and jumping.

As your toddler explores movement, they’ll also be refining their fine motor skills, which involve using their smaller muscles for tasks like grasping objects, scribbling, and turning pages in a book.  These skills are crucial for future learning and everyday activities.

Here’s a quick list to help you keep track of some common toddler motor skills milestones:

  • 12–18 months: Walks steadily, climbs stairs with support, throws a ball overhand.
  • 18–24 months: Runs without falling, kicks a ball, scribbles with a crayon.
  • 2–3 years: Jumps with both feet off the ground, climbs furniture, uses utensils to eat.

Remember, every child develops at their own pace. If you have any concerns about your toddler’s motor skills development, don’t hesitate to reach out to our experienced childcare providers at Petits Poussins Dumbo. We’re happy to answer your questions and provide guidance based on the latest child development vocabulary.
