Mentis-XL - Child development for the under fives targeting movement, social, and thinking skills

Assisting child development

The pack your child may useMentis XL have produced a Child Development Programme - to help pre-school children in the Early Years Foundation Stage to develop their skills. A gift they will value in the future.

At Mentis-XL we believe that child development should start in the Early Years, well before starting school and to help your pre school child at home, have produced a programme for parents of young children. This is not an educational toy with which you can leave your children - it encourages interaction between the child and parent/ teacher.

Research shows that many children on entering school are lacking in the development of key skills. We aim to address these problems.

Our programme for early learning is not based on reading, writing or arithmetic - traditional aspects. Instead a structured series of activities has been developed to encourage movement skills, thinking skills, social skills and cognitive development in children aged three to five.

Recent research shows that more than half children entering education for the first time - either at nursery or reception, are lacking in movement skills. We believe that movement is the first language children learn and that failure to develop these skills can hinder their neurological progress.

On our website is information relating to the CDP and a sample video (of differing qualities depending on your connection) showing the type of exercises we are trying to encourage parents to try.
