Look at me, I am 3!

Turning 3 years old is the start of a very busy and exciting stage in your child’s development.

Every day, your child is learning new skills that will help them prepare for starting school.

Although every child grows and develops at their own pace, some children will need extra support. To help you know if your child needs a little help with their development, we have created a short video. The video describes the developmental skills that most 3-year-olds will have reached.

It also tells you who to contact if you have any concerns. This could be your Community Health Nurse, the Child Development Service, or your family doctor.

Together, we are here to support you and your child.
