The early years of a child’s life are very important for his or her healthy development.
Tracking A Child’s Development
- 6-9 months is a time of great fun for parents as they watch their babies become eager explorers who are thrilled to discover that they can make things happen.
- Between 9 and 12 months , babies take action with a goal in mind. These purposeful actions also show that babies have developed a better memory.
