Keep it fun! Teaching kids using the FUN-damentals!

Updated: Apr 5, 2023

Turning potential into actual intelligence

You’ll sometimes hear the argument that pre-school children shouldn’t, for example, learn to read: they should be joyfully exploring nature. This misses the point – they can do both. FUNdamentals is built on the conviction that a properly designed word game can be just as much fun as making mud pies. Children need a whole range of activities of bring out their potential.

Brain building: Your child is born with more than enough brain cells to be highly successful. More than 100 billion! It’s not the number of brain cells that determines usable intelligence, it’s the number of connections that are made between those brain cells.

These connections are formed by the experiences and thoughts that you give to your child through the rich, stimulating environment you provide in the early years. That environment is made up of games, visits, conversations, experiences, activities and loving attention.

Throughout FUNdamentals we are careful to stress that you need to create an environment that is sufficiently challenging to produce a feeling of achievement – but never so challenging as to be overwhelming. It’s a delicate but vital balance.

Over-ambitious parents fail because, instead of support and encouragement, they provide a hot-house environment and pressure.

It’s also vital to recognise that each child develops at his own pace. Albert Einstein started talking very late and he failed mathematics early in high school. Yet, of course, he went on to become the greatest scientist of his age. Winston Churchill initially talked with a stutter and a lisp. Yet he became one of the 20th century’s greatest leaders. Give your child a chance.

The only race your pre-schooler is in the HUMAN RACE.

The great thing about Learning FUNdamentals is that you can take it wherever you go, so inspirational activity ideas will always be at hand. That way you can choose new games and activities that suit the moment.

Never impose an activity on your child: let the game or activity develop naturally.
Try to incorporate several different types of game or activity each day. You might play a reading game, then a music game, then a creativity exercise, then a maths game, then a vocabulary game, then a physical activity. It’s the variety that’s important.

They will help to build your child’s skills up gradually and solidly through motivating natural play.
