Milestones of Child Development: Learning and Development from Birth to Kindergarten (Revised 2013)


By specifying the knowledge, skills, and dispositions often acquired or exhibited in young children, the Milestones offer a comprehensive reference to consolidate our understanding of young children and what adults can do to support language, learning, and development in order to help reduce inequities in achievement as children mature. Further, the Milestones highlight the essential need for partnerships among families, early childhood programs and services, schools, and the community. Together, we can make a positive difference in the lives of young children.
