Cedar Park Child Care: Growth and development milestones for infants

Posted on 10-14-2014


During the first few months of life, a child will experience many changes, including physical, emotional and mental. As a child grows and reaches milestones, care and guidance will be required during the process. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy Cedar Park ,we provide an infant child care program that allows each child to learn and grow in a safe, secure and loving environment.

Our infant child care program has four essential developmental components:

  • Language
  • Social
  • Cognitive
  • Physical

Combining these components, your child will have the opportunity to grow and achieve important developmental milestones.

Milestones and growth

Milestones are processes your infant can master by a certain age. The age will differ from child to child, so try to be patient and not apply pressure on your child to meet a “deadline”. Depending on your child’s age you should be able to recognize when each milestone has been achieved.

Two months: Your child, although still new to everything, should be able to smile, look and focus on you, and hold the head up when lying on his or her tummy.

Four months: At this stage a child should be able to sit straight if propped up, hold and let go of an object, begin to show memory and recognize your voice.

Seven to nine months: Your child should be able to bounce when supported to stand, begin to pull up to stand, and hold a bottle. A child might bang toys on a table at this stage, and begin to put everything in the mouth.

Reaching a milestone is different for each child. There are useful ways you can help boost a child’s brain development which will aid in achieving each milestone. Patience and understanding are the key ingredients during this growth period. For more in-depth information on your child’s milestones and growth, it is best to consult with your family doctor.
