Milestones

Understanding the world

You might notice that:

  • I like to look at and talk to you about photos of people who are special to me, such as family members, brothers and sisters, friends and pets.
  • I like to listen to stories about children and families.
  • I like to explore things to see what I can do with them. I might shake them, hit things with them, look at them, touch them, put them in my mouth or pull them to find out what happens.
  • I can put things together that belong together, such as putting a lid on the teapot or a lid on a box.
  • I know that when you press the button on the remote control the television comes on, or the button on the car key the car makes a noise and a light comes on.
  • I can press buttons on my toys to make a noise or get something to pop up.

How you can help me learn:

  • Tell me stories about children or families, or let me tell you about photos of family members, friends and pets that are special to me.
  • Let me splash in puddles when I’m wearing my boots!
  • Let me climb up a little hill and run down it.
  • Let me mix water and mud together to make “mud pies”.
  • Let me use the camera to take pictures of things.
