Parents can provide opportunities to encourage healthy growth and development for their child. The first year of a child’s life is veryimportant. Babies grow dramatically, not only physically in weight and height, but developmentally. By the end of the first year of life, helpless and dependent babies will develop into little persons eagerly demonstrating their independence through a number of skills. During the first 6 years of life, children learn and develop more than at any other time in their lives! You are essential in helping your child reach his/her optimal potential!
