The purpose of this study was to identify the relationship between fine motor skills and SES among six years old preschool children. A total of 168 children (male=84, female=84) aged six years old preschool children participated in this study. They were divided into three groups based on parent’s income which were known as low income group, moderate income group and high income group. McCarron Neuromuscular Development (MAND, 1975) was used to measure fine motor skills. The result showed that there was significant different in fine motor skills between groups (ρ<().05). However, there was no significant different between fine motor skills and gender (ρ >().05). Moreover, there was significant relationship between fine motor skills and SES { ρ <0.05). Children from low SES have low fine motor skills performance compared to higher SES. Overall, the result of the current study showed that gap in SES. has influence fine motor skills development.
