Ages and Stages: How to Monitor Child Development
The National Association for the Education of Young Children, in their Position Statement principles that should guide early childhood professional practice, explain,. Also important for educators to know are the sequences in which children gain specific concepts, skills, and abilities, building on prior development and learning…. Familiarity with known learning sequences should inform curriculum development and teaching practice. Dig a bit deeper, and there are five benefits that child care professionals gain when they take the time and effort to learn about the typical growth and development of children. Knowledge of child development is the first of three types of knowledge child care providers need in their work with children. The other two are: knowledge of individual children; and knowledge of family, community, and culture from which the child comes. Knowing what is typical at a certain age is the best place to start when experiences and environments are planned for that age of children.
Definitions of stages of growth in childhood come from many sources. Theorists such as Jean Piaget, Lev Vygotsky, Lawrence Kohlberg, and Erik Erikson have provided ways to understand development, and recent research has provided important information regarding the nature of development. In addition, stages of childhood are defined culturally by the social institutions, customs, and laws that make up a society. For example, while researchers and professionals usually define the period of early childhood as birth to eight years of age, others in the United States might consider age five a better end point because it coincides with entry into the cultural practice of formal schooling. There are three broad stages of development: early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescence. The definitions of these stages are organized around the primary tasks of development in each stage, though the boundaries of these stages are malleable.

To help answer this important question, child development experts have created lots of different charts and checklists that can help you keep track of child development across several key domains:. More importantly, just 40 of those developmental milestones show up on all four checklists, which begs the question: Should you depend on a single checklist? The measures that doctors use may be different from those that parents can find in print or online checklists. It may also help to think of development as an individual progression, rather than as a list of boxes you should tick at certain prescribed intervals. Milestones are the things a child can do by a certain age. They vary from child to child, just as hair and eye color do. Every child grows and develops at an individual pace.
