Child growth and development milestones are essential in defining child development. Stages may appear as different entities but in actual sense, they are all the same. The differences between them are just for the purpose of making these terms more familiar to people. Stages in child development are basically based on two things – biology and nurture. These are believed to be interrelated because of the effects of child behavior and environment. The following are a few child growth and development milestones you need to know.

Problem-Solving Skills

One of the most basic child growth and development milestones is Problem-solving skills. This is actually the foundation for most child behaviors and traits. A toddler has to learn how to solve problems to develop and improve his or her intellectual and emotional skills. The toddler will most likely be asked to do various activities and solve problems which will then be translated to actions and socialization. So when the child grows up, he/she will become more capable and wise.

Early Childhood Development

Another important milestone is Early Childhood Development. This is when a child experiences different kinds of emotions such as happiness, sadness, frustration, fear, satisfaction, surprise and so many others. During this stage, the child grows emotionally. There is an approved plan-of-instruction for this course.

Early Language Acquisition

A very important child growth and development milestone are Early Language Acquisition. This involves the early learning of two languages both language acquisition and speech production. When this happens, young children are able to communicate with their parents and peers in both languages. There are also other milestones such as early reading and writing, distinguishing basic colors and shapes, identifying the days of the week and remembering the names of different people and objects.

Pre-School Curriculum Development

One of the most common and significant child growth and development milestones is the Pre-school Curriculum Development. The curriculum, which has been set by the country’s government, must be set down in a code c format. The pre-school curriculum determines the basic learning materials to be used and how they should be utilized. The child growth and development course description are set down in the form of a code c. In this code c, all the instructions, lessons, information or facts that are relevant for the child’s learning process are listed down in this format.

What Is Instruction Code C?

A prerequisite is defined as anything that is needed before the development can take place. For this matter, a prerequisite includes the instruction code c. The requirements may include things like; a literacy test for the mother, the presence of a doctor during pregnancy, the presence of a stable household budget, etc. The mother and father have to jointly identify whether the mother and father are capable to handle the pre-requisites. If the mother and father are unable to determine this, then the school will decide the pre-requisites for them. There is no extra effort required on the part of the parents; therefore, this aspect is very important to the child development.

The academic progress course describes how well the child is being taught by the school. This is determined by the course description. In this case, the course description determines the educational requirement of the child in terms of the course code c. The educational requirements of the child may also include; whether the child is ready to learn reading, writing and arithmetic.

Final Thoughts

All the requirements are described in this course description. The other two areas that are involved in the child development are; creative activities and intellectual activities. Creative activities involve the innovative thinking and the imagination of young children. Intellectual activities are those, which involve problem solving skills for the benefit of the young children. When they attain their specific goals, the parents can be assured that they are achieving what they have set out to do.
