Early Childhood Cognitive Development
What developmental research tells us about how to promote childrens cognitive development:
- Young children learn most effectively from quality interactions with caregivers.
- Teachers support childrens learning through scaffolding, which refers to a broad of interactive styles that support the young childs attention, cognitive and language skills.
- Scaffolding occurs in everyday situations.
