Assisting early childhood learning at home.
Early childhood learning
can be assisted by parents to help their child's early learning and acquire and
develop their skills through a series of pre school activities. Early learning will benefit
your child throughout their life.
At Mentis-XL we believe that part of the early learning you provide for your children should be a stimulating
environment and a wide range of activities. This of necessity will center on the home
environment and parental involvement.
We have therefore produced a programme to help your child development that should help
them extend their skills through a range of pre school activities for the Early Years
Foundation Stage (eyfs)(3-5 years).
How our programme
Our early childhood learning programme is not based on reading, writing
or arithmetic. Instead it centres on a structured series of activities to encourage
the early development of movement skills, thinking skills,
social skills in children aged three to five.
It may come as a shock but more than half the
children entering school (nursery or reception) do not have the
expected motor skills - they lack co-ordination, perception
and balance. This is a serious matter especially as there is
some evidence that lack of motor skills is also accompanied by
an increase in hyperactivity.
Our programme therefore starts off with a
motor assessment so you can see how your child should be
developing before offering structured tasks and activities to correct and
On our website is information relating to this
programme and a sample video showing the type of exercises we
are trying to encourage parents to try.
