Infants (0-12 months)

Emotional Needs

Crying is the primary means when infant being met

Similarly, they smile and giggle when they want more of something, and they turns their heads, shut their eyes, or cry when they want less of something

Physical Needs

Children will 1st learn how to hold their heads up. Little by little they begin to roll to sit

Kids learn to creep, then crawl, pull themselves up,walk while holding onto furniture , stand and then walk 2 or 3 steps without assistance

Children can begin to run, kick a ball, and walk up and down the stairs

You can expect your child to imitate facial expressions,and even develop a social smile by 3 months

Talking begins with babbling, which leads to gradually learning to say and respond to simple words and phrases

They will play in parallel near anther child, but not with others   

Intellectual Needs

Children at this age learn by exploring with their hands and mouth. They bang, throw, drop, shake, and put items in their mouths.

Hiding things will get more difficult when your child starts to look for hidden objects. They can find things hidden under two or three other items.
