Nursery Education - how the Mentis-XL Child Development Programme can help

The Child Development Programme is an ideal resource for nursery education

The Child Development Programme teaching resource helps pre-school children in the Early Years Foundation StageTeachers of children entering reception are concerned about the development of children's gross and fine motor skills as well as lack of concentration. Including the Child Development Programme in nursery education could help improve matters. 

 In the past, children of nursery age would spend their time in activities such as running and jumping. As well as nursery education they would interact with their parents at home, e.g. playing in the garden, climbing frames, slides etc

Regrettably this does not happen so much so nursery education must be structured to maximise child development. The Child Development Programme consists of structured programmes, not only in motor but also in language, literacy and cognitive development.
