Growth & Development Guidelines
The pediatric providers at CentraCare Clinic – Health Plaza Pediatrics have developed growth and development guides for newborns up to age 18. These guides are designed to help parents understand what is considered "normal" for each age of development, as well as safety tips and when to call your health care provider.
The following guides are available for you to download in PDF.
Newborn to 1 year
1 year to 5-6 year
7-10 year to 15-18 year
Reach Out and Read
Transform the life of a child by giving the gift of reading today.
Through the Reach Out and Read program, our clinic gives children from age 6 months to 5 years a new book at every well-child clinic visit. These books enable our patients’ families to make reading aloud together a daily activity.
When you donate money or a new book to our Reach Out and Read program, your gift makes a big impact and helps us purchase new children’s books for others.
Donate online or call CentraCare Health Foundation at 320-240-2810.
School & Sports Physicals
Don’t forget to schedule your child’s school and sports physicals to ensure they are completed before sports practice and school begin. It is best to schedule the physical early in the summer.
School physicals are required before children start kindergarten and 7th grade and before participating in any high school sporting activities (and every two-three years thereafter).
