Loving care and the earliest possible education are important for children's development - in the family and in daycare centers & co. But what are the developmental milestones between the ages of 3 and 6?

First of all, every child develops uniquely and at their own pace. While one child is already happily telling whole stories, another may still be forming very simple, short sentences. This is completely normal and nothing to worry about. Child development is an individual, continuous and dynamic process.

Nevertheless, there are areas of development that can provide guidance and enable needs-based early childhood support and educational opportunities. The areas can be divided into motor skills, language skills, cognitive skills and social-emotional skills.

The Familienportal.NRW illustrates the development areas in detail and provides you with lots of helpful information so that you can promote and support your child's development.
