To learn more about your child’s development, you may want to read “Learn and Grow Together” at http://www.mass.gov/edu/birth-grade-12/early-education-and-care/parent-and-family-support/. This 16-page guide, developed by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care (available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese), includes information on ages and stages of your child, as well as suggestions for fun, low-cost family activities.
