Welcome to the USEP of Ohio Child Development Page

Every child is unique, and every family deals with different issues. There are some things, however, that many parents deal with around the same time uring their child's development. That’s why we've organized our information into Ages & Stages. Click on the age range of your children in the table below to start exploring the information we have provided about child development at different times during the first 2 years. Each PDF document will look similar to the image on the right.


Healthy Start - Grow Smart Page

Healthy Start - Grow Smart Page: Content Standards for Child Care/Development, Nurturing Healthy Children, and special information regarding Teen Parents are all addressed in several sets of documents available on this page. For educators planning curriculum, for independent study, or use with group presentations, this page can provide:

  • A quick and easy guide and reinforcement for students to follow in the classroom or at home.
  • Beautiful color pictures to decorate bulletin boards or to create posters
  • A printed booklet to be used to send home for students who don’t have a home computer

Healthy Start - Grow Smart is also available in Spanish.
