The results of the investigation of psychological peculiarities of understanding in the structure of thinking processes by preschool children are presented in the article. Focusing on psychological studies of the understanding problem, attention is paid on the points, related to understanding as a thinking process, as well as the result of this process, taking into account such important characteristics of understanding as its orientation, motivational basis; as a mediated process, associated with new judgments, concepts, evaluations, conclusions, one or another decisions of the subject. The theoretical analysis of the concept of understanding enabled us to define the main psychological indicators and determinants of its manifestations. Elicited were the features specific to the process of understanding of the new information by pre-school children through the determination of subjective path marks and devising of new image-notions underlying the understanding. The crucial role of the analogy and combinatory mechanisms in the development of new semantic constructions was elucidated. The pilot experimental instructional system was developed that is intended for training children in analyzing new information structures and forming relevant skills.
