The intricate process of child development starts in the womb and lasts until adulthood. It is influenced by biology and the environment, which can have a favourable or negative impact on it. The level of development a person had as a youngster has a significant impact on their mental health. It's critical to monitor a child's growth to make sure it's appropriate. Parental observations, regular visits, and screening instruments are the main methods used for this by parents and primary care physicians. The appropriate services should be set up as soon as a gap or delay is found in order to maximise a child's wellbeing and, by extension, the wellbeing of the future adult.

Early life experiences have an impact on biological and psychological development in ways that affect later life health, happiness, and productivity. Early childhood development has become a political hot topic due to the science behind it and its long-term effects, which have elevated national, regional, and international levels of action. Due to these developments, it is crucial that a framework, measurement techniques, and indicators be created and maintained to track progress both internationally and within individual nations .
Between birth and the end of adolescence, biological, emotional, and psychological changes affect a child's development in humans. Early childhood, middle childhood, and late childhood are the three stages of childhood (preadolescence). Early childhood is often defined as the period from infancy to age six. The social determinants of health are the practises for preserving health and treating existing illnesses as well as the social and economic environments, in which children are born, grow up, live, and eventually work. Despite improvements in health, child malnutrition continues to be a grave issue that has a significant impact on both human and financial resources .
The body of studies on how a child's early development affects their success later in life is continually expanding. The first 1,000 days of life, from conception to age two, are increasingly understood to be crucial for the formation of brain circuits that result in linguistic, cognitive, and socioemotional abilities, all of which are indicators of subsequent results on the job market. The social determinants of a child's health can have an impact on the social patterning of health, sickness, and illness .
From an ecological standpoint, this can also affect a person's general well-being and ability to operate throughout their lifetime. As intended, a participative approach to early childhood care and development is put into practise. The factors that influence illness risks or have a positive or negative impact on health are known as social determinants of health. Social policy can affect the social determinants of health, which are distinct from medical care. Understanding how social variables affect health is related to concepts like social gradients and health equity .
The social circumstances and experiences that children have can have an impact on their health. From conception to the age of eight, early childhood is the period of time. It is believed that a person's growth is mainly influenced by his or her early years of life. Early experiences have a significant impact on a child's life course and developmental trajectory. The nurturing characteristics of the environment parents, carers, family, and community—where children are nurtured, live, and learn will have the greatest impact on early development. A child is a developing live being. The child grows up in a social environment and has a biological foundation .
Child growth occurs everywhere. Its management and surveillance are complex and difficult. Children frequently experience behavioural problems and developmental problems, which can manifest in a variety of ways. Interprofessional collaboration and communication between the parent or carer, the primary care physician, and the school system are necessary for the management of these conditions. To produce successful adults, society has a duty to develop physically and psychologically healthy youngsters. Strong connections between the entities that are involved in a child's life are necessary to improve.
