Child Development

Healthy development and lifelong learning habits need a strong foundation – that’s where you come in!

Strong Foundations

Strong foundations are built with one positive interaction at a time. Your family can create a lifetime of quality experiences by:

  • Fostering stable, responsive relationships and consistent, nurturing interactions
  • Encouraging safe, active, and creative exploration and play
  • Promoting good health, nutrition, and eating habits
  • Maintaining quality, caring environments for optimal growth and learning
  • Staying involved with support, encouragement, and laughter



Stages of Development

Having some knowledge about the different stages of development your kids go through and being able to recognize the milestones they reach as they grow can also help families engage in quality interactions. You can learn about the four Domains of Development here and access activities that support growth within each domain here.
