Abstract
Indonesia has faced up malnutrition and non-communicable issues for years, yet currently Indonesia turned out to be ranked at the top ten most obese countries in the world. The trajectory of the rate of obesity is increasing from childhood to adolescence. Physical inactivity is a factor that contributes to this obesity crisis. Therefore, a preventive action should be comprehensively planned in Indonesia, started from the early age. Fundamental motor skills (FMS) have shown a contribution to the likelihood to be physically active. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to develop a structured physical activity program to promote motor skill competence for early childhood to be implemented at preschools and kindergarten. This study reports a preliminary data of preschoolers/kindergarteners competence on FMS and a design of motor skill program that has been piloted in Padang, West Sumatera. The initial analysis of over 100 young children in Indonesia showed that they had low motor skills competence. Therefore, a motor skill program has been designed and piloted. If the results showed the effectiveness of this program to promote children competence on motor skills, it will be implemented in statewide in West Sumatera.
