Material and methods. The study involved 53 healthy children aged 4-7 years attending preschool facilities in Upper Silesia. The control group consisted of 20 children, who did not crawl in infancy. The control group consisted of 33 children who were crawling in infancy. The research consist: author’s questionnaire and Ozierecki’s Test of motor and visual-motor coordination. Questionnaire concern five parts of information about health, development, and current motor skills level of children. The second stage of the study – Ozierecki’s Test (interpreted by A. Barański) was used to assess the motor and visual-motor coordination level of 4-16 years old children.
Results. The group of crawling children had a higher level of visual-motor coordination, but only in one of the examined skills (swinging). The presence of crawling does not significantly affect the motor abilities of an older child. In the study group, it is noted that the higher the value of Apgar points obtained at birth, the higher the motor skills and motor coordination.
