    Preschoolers (3-5 years of age)

    ~Developmental Milestones
    Skills such as naming colors, showing affection, and hopping on one foot are called developmental milestones. Developmental milestones are things most children can do by a certain age. Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, behave, and move (like crawling, walking, or jumping).
    As children grow into early childhood, their world will begin to open up. They will become more independent and begin to focus more on adults and children outside of the family. They will want to explore and ask about the things around them even more. Their interactions with family and those around them will help to shape their personality and their own ways of thinking and moving. During this stage, children should be able to ride a tricycle, use safety scissors, notice a difference between girls and boys, help to dress and undress themselves, play with other children, recall part of a story, and sing a song.
    ~Positive Parenting Tips
    Following are some of the things you, as a parent, can do to help your preschooler during this time:
    Continue to read to your child. Nurture your child’s love for books.
    Let your child help with simple chores.
    Encourage your child to play with other children. This helps him to learn the value of sharing and friendship.
    Be clear and consistent when disciplining your child. Explain and show the behavior that you expect from her. Whenever you tell your child no, follow up with what he/she should be doing instead.
    Help your child develop good language skills by speaking to him in complete sentences and using “grown up” words. Help him/her to use the correct words and phrases.
    Help your child through the steps to solve problems when he/she is upset.
    Give your child a limited number of simple choices (for example, deciding what to wear, when to play, and what to eat for snack).
