Child development refers to how a child becomes able to do more complex things as they get older. Child development study explores how a child develops from birth to age eight from all perspectives: physical/motor, cognitive, social, emotional, and language. Here, the focus is on how development occurs within the context of family, community, culture, and relationships.
Evidence tells us that a person’s life successes, health and emotional wellbeing have their roots in early childhood. Both nature and nurture (genes and environment) influence children’s development. The quality of a child’s earliest environments and the availability of appropriate experiences at the right stages of development are crucial determinants of the way each child’s brain architecture develops.
