    Various theories that explain how children learn have been formulated. Teacher and subject centred teaching methods were mostly used in ancient times. Today however, many educational research scholars have come up with more appropriate teaching methods. Researchers in Child Developmental are of the opinion that the aspects of growth and development are interrelated and thus a child’ physical development will affect his/her socio-emotional as well as cognitive development and hence his/her learning. Knowledge of theoretical principles in child development and instructional methods will help us understand the stages through which a child passes and what he/she is capable of learning or doing.
