The way your child plays, learns, speaks, and acts all play a key role in offering you clues about their development. That is why doctors use developmental milestones, or sets of functional, age-specific tasks that most children can do by a certain age range. These milestones, often compiled in early childhood developmental charts, can help parents get a clear idea about the range of normal development. They can also help identify signs that could indicate a developmental delay as reinforced by the CDC.
At two and a half years old, your little one’s skills are developing quickly! At this age, your child’s desire to be independent is growing, they may be speaking more than 200 words, and could even be fully potty trained. While every child develops at different rates, it’s important for parents and caregivers to be observant of their growth which can be done using early childhood developmental charts.
Here at Right Start Children’s Services, we are fully committed to aiding families through serving as an early intervention resource and support. We provide education and assistance to help your child develop new skills that can make their daily life easier. That is why we created this free, downloadable 30-month childhood developmental chart so you can keep track of the milestones and skills your little one should be able to do at this age.

Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, guardian, or foster parent raising a child, monitoring your little one’s growth and development is important. This way, if additional support is needed to get them back on track, you will know the red flags early. Acting early on concerns about your child’s development is important and can help them catch up quicker! If you believe that something is off after viewing our 30-month childhood developmental chart, first talk to your doctor, express any concerns, and ask about developmental screenings.
