Early Years

Progress Check at Age 2

Progress Check at Age 2

For Practitioners working with children aged between two and three must review their progress and provide parents with a short written summary of their development in the prime areas. Where any weaker areas of development are identified, settings should discuss how they will support the child.

They can also signpost parents to a range of other information and support including children’s centres, speech and language therapy and occupational therapy. Health visitors also carry out health and development reviews for children aged two. It is vitally important that parents know about the different checks available and what they offer.
