I'd like to second Fossidarity with critical thinking, but also add logic. Common fallacies too. Ive found logic useful my whole life, I used to tutor logic and I really suspect it helps people to get the fundamentals if not all the fancy words or symbols early on in development.

ALSO any of the culturally approved child virtues that also kind of align with radical left thinking. (Sharing, Egalitarianism, etc).

Also the value of challenging authority and thinking for one's self. This is a tough one as Children to a degree need to be shepherded by parents or guardians. However there is a difference between telling children they must obey because of authoriatirian/patriarchal thinking versus explaining to them why something is in fact in their best interest and allowing them to ask questions about it.
