it was one of the things they asked in my daughters 2 year check so I think they do look for it but not sure at what specific age they are meant to be able to (as somethings in the check they are not actually meant to be able to do yet on average)
My LO can't jump yet. There are 2-3 kids in his toddler preschool who can't, but most of them can and have been jumping since they were under 2. He tries, but just doesn't get how to do it at this point.
Omar can jump. I think he was around 19-20 months when he learned how to jump on the floor. But he was always (still) obsessed about jumping. He started by holding hands for balance, then he learned how to jump without holding hands.
What helps is using bouncy castles, trampoline & jumping on the bed. Since we stopped using the jumperoo at 10 months, Omar started to hold hands to bounce on the bed, then when he learned how to walk he showed interest in trampolines & bouncy castles in play areas. Now he has a trampoline & he can jump so high while opening & closing his legs with perfect balance. I think he can jump around 5 times standing on the floor.
