It was the Hungarian pediatrician, Emmi Pikler, who called attention to a child’s independent development of motor skills. Given the freedom to move on their own, children will learn themselves and of their own initiative to sit up, stand up and walk.

The tree children in this film are living at the Emmi Pikler Institute in Budapest, Hungary, where they have warm and stable relationships with the adults taking care of them. We will see how important moving and exploring variations of movement is in their lives.
