Healthy Growth and Development

The early years of your child´s life are important to ensure their healthy growth and development. As parents, you may have questions about what to expect at various ages and stages - from pregnancy to age six, how to give your child the best start, what resources are available, and how to find services near you. 

Common areas of concern may include developmental milestones, behaviour, nutrition and safety. For answers to these questions, and for more information on healthy growth and development, visit Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services or call the Health Unit at 1-866-888-4577, ext. 5003.
