Cognitive Development

Cognitive development covers various aspects of a child's growing mind. We recognize and develop the following skills:


Problem solving and critical thinking:

  • Early Problem Solving: Identifying problems, exploring potential solutions, and trying out different approaches to reach a desired outcome.

  • Creative Thinking: Generating new ideas, exploring possibilities, and thinking beyond the obvious.


Language Development and Communication:

  • Understanding spoken language, following directions, and interpreting information.

  • Using words and sentences effectively to communicate needs, ideas, and feelings.

  • Acquiring new words and understanding their meaning in different contexts.

  • Creating and sharing stories, using appropriate sequencing, and expressing ideas clearly.


Memory and Attention:

  • Short-term Memory: Recalling recent events and information for short periods.

  • Long-term Memory: Storing information and experiences over longer periods.

  • Attention Span: Focusing on a task or activity for increasing durations.


Sensory Processing and Perception:

  • Recognizing and understanding visual information, such as shapes, colors, and spatial relationships.

  • Listening attentively, discriminating sounds, and understanding spoken language.

  • Exploring and understanding the world through touch and manipulation of objects.


Executive Functions:​

  • Flexibility and Adaptability: Adjusting to changing circumstances and unexpected challenges.

  • Self-Control and Impulse Inhibition: Managing emotions, delaying gratification, and resisting temptations.


These are just some of the areas of cognitive development addressed in early learning and development standards for pre-school children.
