Your Child

As your child’s first and most important teacher, you lay the foundation for all later brain growth and development.

HealthySteps improves child and parent well-being.

We believe you are the true expert on your children. As your child’s first and most important teacher, you lay the foundation for all later brain growth and development. There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to raising children. The HealthySteps resources help you as you learn to support and guide your child in their first three years and beyond.

HealthySteps age-based handouts are free and available for download. The “what to expect” chart for your baby covers each developmental phase along with the well-child visit schedule and includes frequently asked questions, and information about common parenting challenges for each age and stage.
