As your infant grows, he or she develops cognitive skills by learning from the environment and from you. Cognitive development is the study of the process involved in a child’s thinking and knowing ability. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Lake Norman, we run an excellent infant child care program that is accommodating, educational and provides the highest quality care for your child. Below we have compiled information on infant cognitive development that may assist you to better understand your infant’s brain development.

What is cognitive development

Cognitive development is the ability for your infant to learn language, memorize things and have physical coordination. Your child’s brain is hard to understand, as everything is not fully wired and continuously developing everyday. The parts of the brain that control a child’s bodily functions will remain the same for the rest of his or her life. They already know how to breathe, sleep and feed by the time they are born.

When does the development begin

Cognitive development can begin even before birth. Your child is able to remember certain things from the time they were in the womb. A few weeks after birth they can realize that they are able to make things happen, but their ability to remember this will only develop over time. From two months to six months your child will start developing memory, and begin connecting the dots between action and reaction. This is called recognition. You can aid in improving your child’s cognitive development by performing specific exercises and activities.

At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Lake Norman we can provide your child with the best infant care possible, for more information on how to enroll your child into our Learning Academy click here.
