Posibilidades y limites de un fomento cognitivo temprano (Possibilities and Limits of Early Cognitive Development).
This article discusses preschool education and the research conducted in that field on various relevant topics in an effort to establish recommendations and programs. Cognitive development is the main issue and is seen as a product of maturation as well as of a broad base of experience which results from interaction between the mind and the surrounding environment. Research concerning cognitive development in relation to language development, arithmetical development, and early reading is discussed. Considerations for preschool programs are presented. (VM)
