Your toddler is at an age of incredible development and learning. A toddler is a young child between the ages of one and three. Children at the toddler stage are quickly gaining their ability to understand and use words. When you are in need of daycare for your toddler, it is essential to find a place that has high-quality care to help your toddler along in his or her development.
A Toddler’s Incredible Development
By the time your toddler is around one-year-old, it is likely that he or she is able to say several words. By the age of three, a toddler can typically make sentences. This is incredible growth! Between the ages of 1-3 your toddler will begin the following:
- Walking and climbing
- Showing personality traits
- Becoming increasingly independent
- Saying 50 plus recognizable words and understanding more
- Constantly asking questions
- Washing and drying hands
- Listening to and telling stories
Toddlers are also gaining skills in physical coordination, such as kicking a ball, climbing stairs and scribbling with a crayon. You will also see your toddler start to assert his or her own opinions and personality by saying “no!” Of course, all children go through different rates of development, so it is important for parents not to stress too much about specific milestones, as long as their children are happy and healthy.
