Previous Visit

Next Visit



Give your child time to try and figure out something new before stepping in to help.


Read with your toddler and let them turn the pages. You can point to words and ask lots of questions.


Your toddler still needs your help to calm down. They won't be able to take in or make sense of what you say during a tantrum.

Safety: Playing Outdoors

Supervise your child during outdoor play to keep them safe, and always hold their hand near streets or driveways with moving cars.
