This book presents the sequence of changes that occur as children grow and develop from conception to the age of twelve years. It explores the contribution of child development theorists and researchers and attempts to draw out their relevance to the local context. It highlights the factors that influence growth and development and brings out the critical role of the family and the early childhood teachers in the formation of children’s character and personality. Our attention is drawn to the many risks in our environment such as poverty, HIV and AIDS and child abuse which threaten children’s survival and wellbeing. The authors anticipate that the book will help parents, teachers, trainers and other professionals enable children to realise their full potential.
