Your Child’s Growth and Development

Why should you know about your child’s growth and development?

You want the very best for your child — every parent does. But raising a child can be overwhelming. There are health concerns, safety issues, nutrition, self-esteem, education, and socialization. And that’s just on a good day! And many parents even worry whether their child is growing and developing the way they should be.

Don’t worry. Every parent has the same issues and worries. But sometimes you just need a little help. That’s why we’re committed to making things easier for parents of any age and experience. We offer a wide variety of programs, services, resources, and professionals who can help you build a healthy and happy family.

Every child grows and develops differently, doing things at their own pace. Children generally reach certain milestones in their life at roughly the same time, so we’ve got several pages that describe each of the major age milestones, and what usually happens at that time. Understanding these gives you the chance to help your child develop new skills and reach their full potential.


Ages and Stages

In addition to these child development stages, we have a wealth of information and free resources for parents to use, borrow, and learn from. Our goal is to be your one-stop shop for everything related to early child care and education.


  1. Our Book, Toy, and Resource Library is available for parenting help, and has thousands of toys, books, and games you can take home. We also sponsor story time once a month.
  2. Learn what questions to ask and what to look for when searching for quality child care.
  3. Find area child care facilities that meet your requirements on the CCRC child care referrals database.

Your child is learning a lot of new things, but he will not always grow and develop at the same rate as other children. He may be faster or slower than other children his age.
