Smart Start is North Carolina's model early childhood initiative to help all North Carolina children enter school healthy and prepared for success. This resource guide, in Spanish and English versions, is designed to provide parents with information on infant and child development, health care, and resources for further assistance. Presented in an easily displayed, calendar-type format, information on typical child development is organized in chronological order for the following age groups: newborn, 1-2 months, 3-4 months, 5-6 months, 7-9 months, 10-12 months, 13-15 months, 16-18 months, 1.5-2 years, 2.5 years, 3 years, 4 years, and 5 years. Suggestions are provided for ways parents can enhance their child's development, make their environment safe, and keep them healthy. Space is provided in each age group section for parents to attach their child's photograph and note their child's length, weight, sleeping habits, new skills and talents, and favorite items and activities. Specific information is provided on responding to crying infants, obtaining help if parents are concerned about their child's development, and recognizing quality child care; the recommended childhood immunization schedule is also provided. The guide concludes with a list of contacts for the state's Smart Start sites in each county. (KB)
