For School Aged Children

Approaching Milestones

As children grow up, it is amazing to see how much they quickly learn. Parents with school aged children have also learned quite a bit by now. Even though they are experienced in parenthood, each milestone, such as starting kindergarten or a new grade, can bring up new questions or concerns for them.

Senders Pediatrics is committed to providing you with the most comprehensive and cutting edge information. When an issue arises or if you are just looking for a bit more information, the internet can be a bit overwhelming and unsettling.
