Caring for your child’s health involves all the information on this web site about physical and emotional development and nurturing. Here we have focused on some specific areas of physical development that require special attention. Using the navigation to the left, you will find information on caring for your toddler’s hearing, vision, teeth, brain, and motor skills.
  • Regular checkups with your doctor or public health nurse help ensure your child’s hearing, vision, and speech are developing properly.
  • Encourage the healthy development of your toddler’s brain through nurturing, movement, exploration, and play.
  • Now that your toddler’s teeth have begun to come in, you need to brush them daily and schedule dental appointments.
  • Provide your toddler with lots of safe places for big movement activities, and age-appropriate toys for developing fine motor skills.
