To learn the skills and concepts presented in the classroom, children must pay attention, register and assign meaning to information they see and hear, and store that information in memory. The transition from infancy to early childhood is associated with increased proficiency in tasks requiring attention, working memory, and cognitive flexibility, all of which help to predict rate of learning.
