Every day, your child is growing and learning. The most important time for a child’s development is the first 5 years.

Watch Me Grow is funded by First 5 San Mateo County to help parents and caregivers better understand their child’s developmental milestones and encourages their readiness to learn and succeed in school. Pediatricians recommend that all children under the age of 5 have a developmental screening. Gatepath is Watch Me Grow San Mateo’s lead agency. Since 2007, Watch Me Grow has partnered with health care providers, early educators, community based organizations and families to ensure children achieve their optimal, healthy development.
