After 50 years of research, the evidence is clear that intervening early matters. Kindering offers developmental evaluations at no cost to families for all children ages birth to three in order to widen access and opportunity for ALL children to receive the early support they need.
An evaluation is a comprehensive assessment of how a child is learning and growing. Kindering’s developmental evaluations are completed by trained professionals who can gather information and insight on a child’s development.
