Health in pregnancy and the early years

Your child's development

Children all develop at different rates depending on their genetics, their personality and how they're parented.

If there's something worrying you, talk to your health visitor, GP or a member of staff at your local Family Centre.

Health and development reviews for two-year-olds

When your child is two your health visitor and your child’s key person (if they attend an early years setting) will carry out a health and development review.

You'll be sent a questionnaire about your baby's development to fill in before the review. A health visitor, keyworker or childminder can help you with this.
