According to psychologist Jean Piaget, children progress through a series of four critical stages of cognitive development. Each stage is characterized by changes in how kids understand the world. •The sensorimotor stage, from birth to age 2 •The preoperational stage, from age 2 to about age 7 •The concrete operational stage, from age 7 to 11 •The formal operational stage, which begins in adolescence and spans into adulthood.

Bronfenbrenner views the developing child embedded in a series of complex and interactive systems. He divides the environment into four levels: the microsystem, the mesosystem, the exosystem, and the macrosystem. #Development
