There are specific expectation for children's behavior and development at certain ages which provide milestones for development.

When you understand developmental milestones and know how to stimulate children’s learning through developmentally appropriate activities, you create an enriching environment for all children. Sometimes modifications are required to meet a child’s unique developmental needs. Modifications could range from physical to emotional to cultural. Always keep an open mind and open lines of communications with parents. They know their children best and want the best for them.
Remember you are not alone. Connect with local, state and national organizations to access valuable resources.
