The development of cognitive skills in the preschool child Bauslaugh, Ann
The study attempted to evaluate the levels of cognitive skills of kindergarten children attending day care, and the apparent growth of cognitive skills over a period of time, using published tests as instruments of measurement. An informal evaluation of the tests was made. The review of literature presented three points of view regarding approaches to the development of cognitive skills. An analysis of the data, using t-tests, was carried out and conclusions were stated. Implications of the study were made, and questions concerning the growth of cognitive skills of kindergarten children attending day care centres were raised.
