The last half of your child’s third year is full of exciting developmental gains. At this stage you will notice your toddler beginning to:

  • Run without falling.
  • Remove lids from jars, rotating her wrist.
  • Enjoy playing near other children, but he is not yet able to play co-operatively.
  • Enjoy looking at books and talking about the pictures.
  • Match shapes, pictures, and some colours.
