QT-30 is shorthand for “30 Minutes of Quality Time Each Day” to be shared with a child in a parent’s or caregiver’s life. Of all the things we can do to help our children grow up well, 30 minutes of quality time each day is the smallest step with the biggest benefit.
QUALITY TIME MAKES THE DIFFERENCE!
Developmental milestones are clues that your child’s growth is on track. The way they listen, talk, move, behave and learn at certain ages are big milestones. Developmental screenings help you know if developmental milestones are being met.
