Preschool: Ages 3-4
Preschoolers are quickly gaining independence, from toileting and dressing themselves to separating from you more as they start preschool programs. They love to pretend, dress up in costumes and can have wild imaginations. This may lead to an imaginary friend or a fear of monsters, but that is completely normal at this age. They have more control over their bodies, so you can teach them to pedal, skip and swim. They learn quickly and will be able to recognize shapes, letters and colors. Keep reinforcing this with frequent reading to them and then letting them use a book to tell you the story. Feeding a preschooler can be a challenge as they tend to resist new things, but keep trying. They start to understand more at this age about respecting authority and behavior boundaries. Family time is very important to give them a sense of security and identity, so eat, play and hang out together as much as possible.
Beginning at age 3, your child will come for yearly well visits. We will continue to monitor his/her growth and development, screen for any problems and administer important vaccines. This is also the age where we will begin vision screening.
