We have seen that there are at least two different processes by which learning can be acquired. Once a skill has been acquired, it can be further described by the depth or level of knowledge demonstrated. According to Bloom (1956), there are six levels of knowledge that describe most learning. The first level is direct knowledge, which is closely related to the instructional material. A spelling test is a good example of this type of knowledge where the goal is to learn the correct order of letters that compose specified words.

Creating learning programs that effectively increase student mastery of skills is vital. Merging what is known about the development of young children and effective instructional design practices can create effective and efficient educational programs. This current chapter examines the development of young children by extracting themes that can guide the implementation of effective after-school programming for young learners. Defining Learning and Development Parents, teachers, peers, and mentors support children as they face the challenges of development.
