Growth and Development of a child involve his/her physical growth, cognitive growth, emotional and behaviour development, communication and social skills development. Each of these areas development depends on and influences others.

The child’s brain develops faster during the first five years of life than at any other time in his life. Formation of the brain cells is faster during the early stages. This is the phase when foundations for learning, health and behaviour throughout life are laid down.

There are important factors that determine child development. Play plays a crucial rule in the early years of child growth and development. It’s your child’s main way of learning important skills needed to excel in the future. Play gives the child an opportunity to explore, observe, experiment, and solve problems and learn interpersonal skills. Other factors like healthy eating, physical activity, health, and the parent-child bond also have a big impact on the child’s wellbeing and development.

children grow and develop at different rates. It’s important to know as a parent that development is different for every child and no matter what your child’s rate of development and growth, a loving and supportive environment are crucial to the child’s happiness and self-esteem.
