Preschoolers: Child Development Index

Featured: Preschoolers: Child Development Main Article
Developmental milestones for preschoolers (children 3-5 years of age) include riding a tricycle, helping to dress and undress herself, singing a song, recalling part of a story, and playing with other children. It's important for parents to read to their preschooler, let your child help with simple chores, be consistent with discipline, speak to your child in complete sentences, and encourage your child to play with other children.
