Kindergarten - studying primitive languages, drawing, recognizing things

Elementary School - studying simple languages and maths systematically, and some other simple sciences

Middle School and High School - Advance languages, mathematics, and sciences. Sensorimotor - We gain the cognition of object permanence in this stage. Preoperational - We are only able to understand the physical world through simple symbols in limited point of views. Example: How a person perceive a new knowledge The process of perceiving is the study of the mind What are some schools of thought to study psychology What can be an answer of this question...? Psychoanalytic, Behaviouralism, Learning Theory Initial Schema - Psychology is the study of human mind and behaviour Concrete operational - We are now more logical and conscious, and more decentered to know more aspects about physical laws in the world.
