The Bright Path Programs
The Bright Path Programs are state-of-the art cognitive programs that utilizes Piaget’s Theory of cognitive development centering around the nature and development of human intelligence.
Through a series of stages, Piaget proposed four stages of cognitive development: the sensorimotor, preoperational, concrete operational and formal operational period. The sensorimotor stage is the first of the four stages in cognitive development which “extends from birth to the acquisition of language”.
