Age Four

About this age

Welcome to age four! This is a year with great changes in your child’s growing independence as well as in your relationship with your child. This year will bring more than just problem solving but also reasoning skills and curiosity. Age four is a great time to start communicating openly and comfortably with your child about all the questions and concerns he can articulate about himself and his environment and those in it.
