A milestone by definition is "An action or event marking a significant change or stage in development." At Kidspiration it is our goal to help each individual child reach specific milestones in their journey to develop and improve. We celebrate these significant turning points with not only the child, but with your entire family. The developmental milestones are the particular accomplishments our staff use as goals, developing skills and overcoming personal hurdles according to a guided framework.
Social/emotional abilities, such as how a child interact with other people and how kids play
Motor skills, including gross (movements that involve large muscles) and fine (movements involving small muscles)
Cognition, or a child’s ability to think and problem solve
Communication, or the development of language and hearing and reaction to sounds
The CDC - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - have outlined a set of milestones to help parents track development and see any early signs of delay. Visit their website or download their Milestone Markers Checklist.
Realizing the individuality and uniqueness of every child, what one milestone marker may be for one person may not be the same for another. Every child is different. Our mission is to work closely with the family and the child to achieve milestone goals in order to improve the child's quality of life. Kidspiration strives to provide a developmental learning experience for children in a classroom environment, while allowing them to receive occupational, physical, and speech therapy - all in our facility. These therapies are provided by licensed therapists who love helping children and are highly qualified in dealing with children.
We can't wait to celebrate your child's milestones in the months ahead!
