A child's development and milestones move at a rapid pace from when a child is born to the age of eight. Key areas of a child's development include behaviour, general development, socialisation and language. These key areas have been explored through social constructivism. The resources used are credible as they have been gathered using government organisations, medical support centres and websites, that have been supported by the NSW Government social services. The checklist of accuracy, authority, objectivity, currency and coverage has been used to justify the reliability of the resources used for this presentation. (Metzger, 2007)

There are varying degrees of change and progression in a child’s early years of development and each child develops in their own way. Children will develop different skills and abilities as a newborn, baby, toddler, preschooler and at school age in key areas of behaviour, development, socialisation and language. (DEECD, 2013) Thorough exploration of credible resources in child development was gained by establishing that each resource was free from errors, the authors gave full contact details, there was in depth information of children’s development and sources were current and up to date.
