CAPUTO, Mariela and GAMALLO, Gabriela. The quality of the maternal garden and its influence on the children's cognitive development. Rev.latinoam.cienc.soc.niñez juv [online]. 2010, vol.8, n.2, pp. 849-860. ISSN 1692-715X.
Several controversies have been raised as to the influence of early childhood education in early cognitive development in children, in view of the need for families to place them in early childhood educational settings (or nurseries) for extended periods of time. This article strives to prove how the quality of the care and attention received by the child will influence development of his/her thinking skills to a great extent, which will or will not benefit his/her utter school development.
Keywords : Early childhood settings (centres) or nurseries; quality; thinking skills; early cognitive; stimulation; reading; writing.
