Development and progress are at each child's individual pace, but it can be encouraged and spurred by creating the right atmosphere and matching the appropriate activities to the child's stage of development.Landmarks in the children's' growth and development are assessed every three months through our summative reports that parents sign, enabling us to detect areas in the child's development that would benefit from extra support
