Driven to Discover: How Thinking Skills Develop Through Everyday Play and Exploration

Early childhood educator watching toddler playing toy xylophone

Watch how thinking skills develop through everyday play and exploration. From Magic of Everyday Moments — Series 3.

During the first three years, children are learning about spatial relationships – or how things fit together – and use this skill to solve everyday problems.

Thinking skills – such as understanding cause and effect, how things fit together, classification, and symbolic thinking – begin developing in baby’s earliest days. Learn how everyday play and exploration support the development of thinking skills in young children by viewing this video.
