Abstract

This study aims to describe the development of fine motor skills in a kindergarten in district of Pesisir Selatan, Province of West Sumatra, Indonesia, where the average age of the students is 5-6 years. By using a qualitative approach. The data collection that the researcher uses is observation, interviews, and documentation. This research showed that the teachers implemented the fine motor development strategies well. The teacher prepared plans, including compiling a semester program (PROSEM) in fine motor development. Teachers also always prepare the Daily Learning Plan Weekly Plan (RPPM) and Daily Learning Plan (RPPH) at the beginning of the school year. The method used by the teacher is also appropriate, and the media used is varied enough so that it can be interesting for kindergarten children to hone students abilities in developing fine motor skills.
