jean piaget

Which Swiss psychologist proposed a Cognitive Development Theory based on 4 stages?

Jean Piaget.

Piaget argued that children’s cognitive development occurs in stages. Specifically, he proposed that, as children’s thinking develops from one stage to the next, their behavior also changes, reflecting these cognitive developments. The stages are:

  • Sensorimotor (0-2 years) – Children primarily learn about their environment through their senses and motor activities.
  • Preoperational (2-7 years) – The ability to use mental representations, rather than the physical appearance of objects or people, improves greatly.
  • Concrete operational (7-11 years) – Children are more capable of solving problems because they can consider numerous outcomes and perspectives.
  • Formal operational (After 11 years) – Children can think about abstract concepts and are not limited to a current time, person, or situation.
