The first five years of life are very important for your child...
At what age should my child sit up? Hold onto a toy? Say their first words? Parents naturally have questions about how their child is learning, behaving or developing. The foundation of learning is built in the period between birth and kindergarten; in fact, 90% of brain development happens before age six. From birth, children who have regular doctor and dental check-ups attend high quality child care, are read to and engaged every day are better prepared for school.
Monitor your child's development...
By doing fun and simple activities together, the Ages & Stages Questionnaires make it easy for you to understand how your child is learning and developing. It is a FREE, confidential and interactive way to show your child's strengths and provides activities to help them as they continue to learn. If your child needs assistance in a particular area, you'll receive information about resources and support to help.
