Course 3: Cognitive Development in Young Children by Mohan Dallumal

Cognitive development in young children, typically occurring from birth to around age 6, is a dynamic and foundational process that encompasses the growth of fundamental mental abilities. Children undergo rapid advancements in language acquisition, memory, attention, and problem-solving skills during this crucial period. Their cognitive development is marked by the emergence of symbolic thinking and imaginative play, contributing to creativity and the understanding of complex concepts. As neural connections proliferate in their developing brains, children become increasingly capable of logical reasoning and critical thinking. Cognitive development is closely intertwined with other domains, such as social and emotional growth, as children learn to regulate their emotions and engage in meaningful social interactions. Providing a stimulating environment and tailored learning experiences during this early phase lays a solid foundation for future academic success and lifelong learning.
