Growth and development are similar words but different from each other though it is not possible to separate them totally.

It is a whole process which includes growth of the body as well as growth of various aspects of child's personality, e.g., the physical, emotional, social and cognitive development.

Development is a progressive change the child undergoes which increases the physical, social, mental and emotional capacities of the child.

In the early stages of life these changes are constructive and after middle age there are destructive changes in the body which lead to old age.Growth

Growth is a natural phenomena whereas development is planned. Growth of human body is a natural phenomena. It can't be called as development. Visakhapatnam port is developed as a major port. It can't be called as Visakhapatnam port is to be grown as major port.
