his chapter considers how the attitudes and skills related to learning to learn are facilitated among Chinese learners in the home and preschool during the early years. First, we review research on early cognitive socialization focusing on studies that have considered how children’s learning to learn skills, including behavioural regulation and problem-solving skills, are promoted in Chinese families. Next, we consider the role of preschool curricula and teachers’ practices on the development of skills related to learning to learn. We then discuss the ways in which experiences at home and in early childhood programmes work together to promote learning to learn and achievement among young Chinese children.
