Mentis-XL: Pre School Activities at the Early Years Foundation Stage

Pre School Activities for Child Development

The BoxPreschool activities have never been more fun than with The Child Development Programme. 

There is evidence that preschool children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) (maybe due to lack of activities) are showing increasing delays in their development. The Child Development Programme is an invaluable aid and has been developed to encourage Early Years children to improve in motor skills, language, information and social skills with activities to aid their development. 

The preschool activities in The Child Development Programme are an holistic approach, with them extending learning skills that are essential pre-requisites for the development of language, literacy, numeracy and thinking skills. 

Preschool children love the activities. It's a great link between early years education at home, and carrying through with their development - extending the activities at nursery and reception class at school.

pre school learning All preschool Children in the Early years (aged 3 - 6) will benefit with the activities - the programme is suitable for the development of a child of any ability, learning through challenging activities.
