Abstract

Concept learning for early childhood is a learning method that aims to instill the concept of critical thinking in early childhood so that the child can understand the lessons given as a whole or achieve a good understanding of the concept. The concept of critical thinking in early childhood is very necessary in delivering to the next level of material understanding. In this study the authors used a descriptive qualitative method with a type of literature study approach. Sources of data used in research consist of various research journals, books, along with other records that are worthy of being used as a support for discussing the object of scientific research study. Furthermore, the process of data analysis is carried out through several stages, namely (1) reading and examining various existing data sources, (2) defining the nature of concept learning for early childhood, (3) analyzing various learning strategies based on concept learning, and (4) concluded several concept learning strategies that can be used in developing early childhood critical thinking skills. The research results found describe that concept learning strategies in developing early childhood critical thinking skills can be implemented through four forms of learning, namely (1) open minded learning, (2) brain-based learning, (3) explorative learning, and (4) experiential learning.
