Keeping track of your child’s development through the use of developmental milestones is a way for you to determine whether or not your child is progressing at a normal rate. It is important to note that some toddlers and preschoolers hit different developmental milestones slightly earlier or later than others. Consult your pediatrician to learn more about developmental milestones to better monitor your child’s progress.

Twelve months

At one year after birth your child is already mobile. It is important to remember to childproof your home so that your child can explore safely. Shortly after the first year, your child will take the first few unaided steps into walking. Also at this time, your child should be able to utter a few clearly discernible words but not be quite able to string together a full sentence.

Eighteen months to two years

Child-proofing your home becomes even more important during this period as your toddler will be completely mobile and getting into everything. Your toddler will start running, skipping and jumping by the age of two. Language development is also progressing with your toddler being able to construct and speak simple, understandable sentences.

Three to five years

Your child will be climbing, swinging, jumping and running. He or she will also be able to hold a comprehensible conversation with other children or with another adult. You may also introduce him or her to self-dressing by the age of four, if your child has not already taken an interest in dressing.
