Wilkes Community Partnersip For Children

Child development is a process involving learning and mastering skills, called developmental milestones, during predictable time periods. This includes cognitive development, social and emotional development, speech and language development, and fine and gross motor skill development. These are things that your pediatrician looks for each year at your child’s well visits. The brain grows rapidly during the first 5 years of life, and it’s important to remember that each child is an individual and will develop at his or her own pace.

As children develop from infants to teens to adults and go through the developmental stages that are important their development, the ideal role of the parent is to provide encouragement, support and access to activities that promote successful development. A parent is their child’s first teacher and will remain their best teacher throughout life.
