Maturation is the guiding notion in educational theory that developing children will develop their cognitive skills on their own with no influence from their environment.

Environmentalism is the opposite view - that children acquire all their cognitive skills from their surroundings.

Vygotsky's ideas allow compromise between maturation and environmentalism.
