Ages and Stages Regional Project
Check Early. Check Often
Why? Because a child’s first 6 years are critical to a healthy mind and body for life. Checking on young children’s development helps to:
- make sure they are growing and learning well
- identify strengths as well as areas that they may need to practice
- prepares them to be ready to learn in kindergarten
- make sure they are off to the best possible start
ASQ (Ages and Stages Questionnaire) provides a quick check of a child’s development. It’s and an opportunity to learn about developmental milestones and fun learning activities. Simple questionnaires are designed to be filled in by parents.
We are currently working on a long-term regional plan that will ensure that all families in the South Okanagan and Similkameen with children under 6 years old have the opportunity to participate in Ages and Stages. Details available soon. Please check back.
