Houston / Katy Day care: Brain development milestones for your child

Posted on 02-06-2015


Your child’s brain development happens primarily in the first five years of life. There are several milestones a child will experience that parents should be aware of however, realize that these are just guidelines as each child develops at an individual pace. This blog will look at a few of the milestones in your child's brain development during the first twelve months.

Months one – three

The brain development milestones during this stage may seem small and insignificant, but these are as much a part of your child’s growth as any other. During this stage, sensory aspects are developing. Your infant should begin to recognize familiar voices and smells. A baby at this age should also begin to look at nearby objects and faces that are within view. These milestones can be enhanced by our expert infant care staff.

Months four – seven

By this stage, your infant will be able to utilize both hands to grasp objects and will be able to respond to certain words. Your child will also be able to sit without support. This is one of the major milestones as it means that your child’s physical and mental growth is moving along well. Again, keep in mind that each child will develop uniquely.

Months eight – twelve

During this period, your child will learn to crawl, which sets the foundation for being able to walk. Generally, around the twelve month mark, your child will be able to walk with a little support from surrounding objects or perhaps even without this support. Other aspects of this period include babbling, which leads to speech.
