The Ages and Stages of Child Development
By Susan A. Miller Ed. Use children's personal experiences to help them understand time concepts. The world of the newborn is a kaleidoscope of feelings, sights, sounds, and smells. Though some babies quickly develop predictable feeding and sleeping patterns, this can take quite a bit of time for most newborns.
In fact, moving from alert to sleep can be an arduous affair in spite of loving efforts to soothe a baby. For the first six months or so, you are helping the baby make order out of chaos. Consistent responsive interactions like being fed when hungry and soothed when upset helps babies organize themselves. Reading babies' cues and responding to their signals builds a sense of trust.
A multitude of nurturing moments helps babies' natural body rhythms and schedules take shape. Loving relationships are formed and life becomes a more predictable pattern of people, things, and events. Predictability and things that are consistent each and every day like night follows day and day follows night are the foundations for a baby's understanding of time.
Each family has their own way of using time, and babies adapt to the family's style, whether that be a style of always "on time," or more casual and less focused on the clock. Babies also bring their own temperament or personality to the family, adding another voice to what will happen and when. Although toddlers can't tell time, it is quite remarkable how they develop a sense of order through repeated routines. You can remain flexible while respecting the toddler's need for routines.
Don't let the daily schedule be a rigid time clock. It can be changed to meet the evolving needs of growing toddlers as long as the sequence remains the same. For example, month-old Sammy is moving to one long nap instead of two. As a result, he is tired earlier in the day. Lunch is moved up so he can be sure to eat before he sleeps. The events of the morning continue to follow the same sequence of play, snack, outdoors, and lunch. But each is slightly shortened.
None of the toddlers are confused by the change, because their routine remains the same. Toddlers and 2-year-olds have all the time in the world. Adults never have enough. Respect the toddler's position, even though it is unrealistic. The young child's drive to learn is strong and urgent. When you must interrupt a child's activities, give him time to adjust to the idea. Adults tend to try and stick to the clock.
We try to keep toddlers "on time. Oh so very excited, 4-year-old Sapphire yells to her teacher: "Today is my special day! It's my birthday! We'll eat my beautiful icing cupcakes at snack time, right after group time. You know, my Nana's birthday comes after mine. Next week we'll drive to her house for her party. For egocentric preschoolers like Sapphire, the present-where she is right now in time-is very important to her.
Three- and 4-year-olds need to have lots of meaningful experiences with time in a personal sense bedtime, storytime to gain a clearer understanding of temporal ideas. For them, time concepts begin to form around events like Sapphire's birthday celebration or washing their hands before lunch.
Following and being involved with a familiar sequence of routines and schedules enhances their time awareness of the present, past, and future. Preschoolers also need to build on these experiences, because time is such an abstract concept for young children. For them, it is rather intangible. For example, Sapphire can observe the symbols of the passage of time her beautiful cupcakes with birthday candles, which represent that a whole year has gone by and she is now a year older , but the actual time is invisible to her.
Threes and fours feel secure when they follow the same time schedules daily-get dressed, eat breakfast, ride to school, participate in group time, and engage in free playtime.
It is possible for adults to change the length of time of their activities. However, it becomes very confusing for young children if the order of events is changed.
When 4-year-old Jake asks, "When do we play outside? Before and after are time concepts understood by preschoolers. For instance, Sapphire knows that group time occurs before snack time. She is also aware that her Nana's birthday comes the week after hers. Her teacher finds it helpful to review the day's events on an experience chart. This reinforces for children timely events, such as how they painted a mural after they went on their walk.
When Sapphire announces she will go to visit her Nana next week to celebrate her birthday, she indicates that she can anticipate an event in the future and plan for it.
Recalling past events, Emily, a 3-year-old, explains to her friend, "Yesterday, you rode the red trike. I had the blue one. For example, Emily's "yesterday" might really be two days ago.
Although preschoolers cannot really read abstract time-telling aides such as analog clocks and calendars until they are older, they are aware that these are tools that help them measure how time passes.
Three-year-old Allison loves to hold up her pretend watch and use her special clock vocabulary: "Daddy's late today," "in six minutes," or "at ten o'clock. As preschoolers develop a sense of time, they are really quite comfortable and knowledgeable using a wide variety of words for units of time in the past, present, and future. By age 4, Ivan knows that he is 4-years-old and he may proudly hold up four fingers to show you his age right now.
Sapphire entertains several variations of day "today," "my special day," "my birthday" and compound examples of time "group time," "snack time".
At 4, Martha uses seasonal words in context as she relates, "Last winter, we made a snowman on the playground. He shares, "This year I will dress up in a ghost costume for Halloween. And of course, preschoolers love to relate the past, present, and future to their egocentric selves. Three-year-old Sara giggles as she shares, "When I was a little baby, I wore diapers. It's morning meeting and the children are gathering for sharing time. The kindergartners' concept of time is evident by their comments.
An excited Joshua is saying, "We are going to visit Grandma yesterday! The concept of time can be difficult for 5- and 6-year-olds to grasp, because it is so abstract. A sense of time is gained gradually during the process of living through timespans marked by events. As children experience the world of people and things, their concept of time becomes integrated into their everyday lives, as well as into their vocabularies.
The words for yesterday, today, and tomorrow are only understandable when they are linked to a specific event or activity that makes the concept of time concrete. During this stage of development, children are learning to understand more and more abstractions. They are in the process of defining time by recognizable events or symbols. Whether it is a memorable event a party or trip or a familiar repeating pattern of the day, these events give 5- and 6-year-olds something temporal to hold on to.
Kindergarten children learn about time by observing and recording it. That is one reason why the calendar is a popular part of kindergarten group time. The problem is that sometimes teachers forget to tie the day and date with something observable and recordable. Weather provides a perfect observable and changeable event to mark the passage of days.
Five-and 6-year-olds can remember that yesterday was sunny and today is cloudy. They can even make a prediction for the weather tomorrow. A weather calendar and graph is a perfect way for children to experience yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Perhaps the most confusing is the concept of past, present, future. As you can imagine, these words are even more abstract than yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Five- and 6-year-olds are beginning to understand that things their parents did were in the "old days," and what their grandparents did was even older than that. Yet, they are still pretty confused by this, as evidenced by Susan who tells her grandmother that she must have "ridden to school on a dinosaur in the old, old days!
Kindergartners can begin to understand this approach to time by exploring both old and new ways to do things. For example, discuss the way people go from place to place. The old way in the past might be to ride a horse and the new way in the present is to drive or fly. Ask children to predict how people will move from place to place in the future. Of course, recognizing the parts of the day is the most basic way, children become aware of the passage of time.
Their capacity to learn about time increases as they become aware of how events reoccur at specific times during the day. Kindergartners want to know what time it is and are beginning to understand that certain things like the start and end of school happen at a defined time each day. Make a photographic timeline for the day at school, marking each event with a picture of the clock at that time and the time written numerically.
You will be giving children an easy reference tool for understanding that, "No, it is not time to go home until the end of the day. Create a List. List Name Save. Rename this List. Rename this list.

Metrics details. Early detection of neurodevelopmental disorders NDDs enables access to early interventions for children. Fixed effects regression analyses assessed longitudinal associations between domain scores and child age. Specificity for the ASQ was high with 1SD or 2SD cutoffs, indicating good accuracy in detecting children who will not develop a NDD, however the sensitivity varied over time points and cut-offs. The high specificity and negative predictive values of the ASQ support its use in identifying children who are not at the risk of developing a NDD.
Assessment plays an important part in helping parents, carers and practitioners to recognise children's progress, understand their needs, and to plan activities and support. Observing children as they act and interact in their play, everyday activities and planned activities will give the information needed for assessment. This progress check must identify the child's strengths and any areas where the child's progress is less than expected. The Council's Early Years Service has produced some resources for you to use when carrying out your assessment:.
Child development stages are the theoretical milestones of child development , some of which are asserted in nativist theories. This article discusses the most widely accepted developmental stages in children. There exists a wide variation in terms of what is considered "normal," caused by variation in genetic, cognitive, physical, family, cultural, nutritional, educational, and environmental factors. Many children reach some or most of these milestones at different times from the norm.
