Development, play and safety

Play is a crucial part of development for all babies as this is how they learn about themselves and the world around them. Although most babies follow a similar pattern or sequence of development, there is a broad ‘expected’ age range for achieving milestones.

Below are a list of websites which illustrate the developmental milestones during the first few months and years and what you might expect to see your baby achieve. If you are ever concerned about your baby’s development, please speak with your CaFHS nurse who can provide you with support and advice.
