18-24 Months

Learn about me!

This is the age when your toddler may be making great leaps in their communication and motor skills. A combination of curiosity and confidence is the driving force behind these developments. With increased independence comes a wide range of changes in behavior. Your toddler may begin to show signs of defiance and an “I want it my way” attitude.

From eighteen to twenty-four months, baby…

Explore on their own but not too far away from you

Walk, run and climb

Become nervous or uncomfortable around new people

At this age

Toddlers are much more independent at this age and may enjoy exploring on their own, engaging with the people around them, and use their strength and balance with more physical activity. They may enjoy copying some of the chores you do by putting shoes in the closet, dropping clothes in a laundry basket and stacking dishes.
