Development at Home

Your child begins to learn and grow before he or she is even born. You are your child's first teacher!

Supporting Your Child's Development

Supporting your child’s development at home can be as simple as playing. Find ideas and tips on this page.

To understand what your young child will likely be able to do at different ages, visit our Milestones page. Milestones tell you what most children can do at a certain age. But, it’s important to remember that every child develops differently.

If you have questions or concerns about your child’s development, learning, or behavior, please contact Help Me Grow Inland Empire.

Food, shelter, and other basic needs are also important to your child’s development. If you need help with any of these things, contact Help Me Grow Inland Empire.

Identifying and supporting delays early can have a life-changing impact. Help Me Grow can help.
