FUNdamentals is a unique online programme that gives you a collection of games and activities that create exactly the rich environment needed to develop a bright and happy child.
It’s an invaluable tool to raise a child with ‘rounded’ abilities, who is able to read, write and understand basic number concepts even before going to school.
FUNdamentals encourages the development of a rich vocabulary, creativity, high self-esteem and good thinking skills.
You will have unlimited online access to over 1,000 activities for ages 2 to 6. They are presented in easy-to-follow screens like this.
The scientific basis of FUNdamentals
Every child is born with billions of brain cells. But their potential capacity is only turned into usable intelligence after these cells are connected up with each other.
The connections become the pathways for all of your child’s future learning. It is a rich, stimulating and fun environment in the critical early years that forms these connections – and therefore develops brain capacity. That’s where FUNdamentals comes into play.
Making the most of the time you spend together
FUNdamentals is based on the best advice from the world’s top child experts including Harvard University’s concept of Multiple Intelligences, as well as Piaget and Montessori.
There are hundreds of games and activities to fill countless hours with fun yet ‘purposeful play’, turning even shopping trips or car journeys into entertaining and brain-building experiences.
Keeping young pre-schoolers occupied and engaged can be a challenge.
This is the perfect solution for every busy parent.
FUN times that provide mental stimulation and develop new skills.

The philosophy behind FUNdamentals
The underpinning foundations of the pyramid are the love, security and fun that you provide for your child. The pyramid blocks are then built up step by step on those foundations.
We like to visualise a child's early development as a set of foundation stones and building blocks.
Click on the pyramid to see how each block contributes to a happy, loving, rounded child, and how FUNdamentals Online helps you develop all of them. Go to FUNdamentals Early Learning Pyramid.
