Skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving “bye bye” are called developmental milestones. Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, act, and move (crawling, walking, etc.). Learn how to look for developmental milestones and what to do if you’re worried about your child’s development.

Parents and caregivers like you are the foundation for children’s healthy development. You keep them healthy, provide learning opportunities, and help them face challenges big and small. Sesame Street in Communities is here to support you in that huge and all-important effort.
Our approach to supporting parents is based on the belief that parents are the true experts on their children, and that there is no “one-size fits-all” approach to raising children. The information and tools we offer are designed to support parents in developing their own ways to promote their children’s growth and development.
