During the first 5 years growth and development is rapid. Every moment is a chance for a child to learn, develop, expand and master their skills. A milestone is a good benchmark to what to expect in a timeframe.
Milestones lay the foundation, capture the overall growth and development of a child. It is particularly useful if you have concerns and/or suspect that your child is not progressing as they developmentally should.
“Life isn’t a matter of milestones, but a matter of moments” Ross Kennedy
