Jean Piaget best described the stages from birth to two years in what he called the sensorimotor stage. It is a stage based on infants and toddlers cognitive development. An infant uses his or her senses and motor abilities to understand the world, beginning with reflexes and ending with complex combinations of sensorimotor skills (Boeree, G.C. (2009). During the first four months of life, according to Piaget, infants interact with the world through primary circular reactions.

Bandura found that children can tell the difference between male and female behaviours and they then use this to influence their own behaviour. For example, Bandura et al found that children do no model the behaviour of both of their parents (i.e. a boy may not cook dinner even though they observe their mother carrying out this behaviour).
At birth, babies already know they are similar to other people. By nine months, babies can differentiate between expressions of happiness, sadness, and anger. By the age of one year, babies develop an understanding of appropriate responses to their environment by observing the people around them. At a year and a half, babies learn that people have different desires and attitudes. By two years old, children begin testing and exploring this idea.

Life Span Development The Childhood Years (ROUGH DRAFT) Erica The childhood years encompass the years of birth to preadolescence, zero to twelve years, respectively. There are major milestones that a child is experiencing during these early stages of life, thus making these the most important and formative years of a person’s life; from forming secure and healthy attachment during the infant years, which extends into the adult years, to developing their autonomy and independence in their toddler years. What children learn in these childhood years will determine the type of adult they will grow to be. This discussion will focus on the period between three to twelve years old. The preschool years, age three to five years, are the next step after toddlerhood.
