Developmental Milestones

Early childhood is not only the optimal time to identify developmental concerns but it is also the perfect time to support development so a child can get on track!  There are many tools that can be used to track development.  Our teachers utilize the Ohio Department of Education's Early Learning Assessment to track from 3-5.  Take a look at the resources offered by the CDC.  Included below is a link to milestones as well as resources.  Remember that every child is an individual and will develop at his/her own pace.  The following is a snapshot of what is typical.  It does not reflect your child's potential!
