Piaget's stages of development...


- 0-2 Years
- Discover the world by using senses and motor activity e.g. a child putting things in their mouth while playing

- 2-7 Years
- The child is egocentric. Language and memory are developing e.g. Begin to use sentences and remember where things have been put

Concrete Operational
- 7-11 Years
- Can only solve problems that are in front of them e.g. a child doing math problems in school

Formal Operational
- 11+ Years
- Can now use abstract thoughts and do problems mentally e.g. Children at school can look at the meaning behind poems
