Preschool does not only teach academic nuts and bolts, but also teaches children the cognitive skills that are necessary to learn and grow socially.

Here are some cognitive skills that your preschooler will be learning:

Problem solving – You may notice that your child is now finding ways to work out problems on her own. She may ask another child to swap toys so she can play with the desired toy. 
Cause and effect – A preschooler is very interested in how and why things work the way they do. Your child at this age is full of questions and curious about everything.
Logical thinking – Your child will begin to use logic. You may notice that she is now organising or arranging objects by size, colour, and likeness.
Understand the concept of time – Your preschooler is now recognizing how time plays into her daily routine.
Follow complex directions – Your child is now learning how to follow more than one direction at a time. For example, “Put your books away and then find your shoes.”
