About StimuLearn™

Introducing Nestlé ® NIDO 3+ FortiLearn® with StimuLearn™ – a winning formula that aids mental development of children aged 3 – 5 years. Science shows that your child’s development goes beyond nutrition, which is why we’ve introduced StimuLearn™, which goes beyond the product to help and support moms in developing their child’s learning capabilities.

It’s no secret that parents are part of the building blocks that influence a child’s brain to form and reform connections during their first 5 years of life. By watching and imitating their parents, children learn how to be normal, functioning human beings. A mother’s love and loving touch leads to feelings of security within children, as well as stable emotional development, social and cognitive skills.

These early years are the most important in the phases of development for your children. Optimal nutrition, stimulation and learning opportunities during this time are vital to reach full cognitive development. This is why it’s so important to ensure that your child is getting all the essential vitamins, minerals and proper stimulation needed to develop effectively.

Key Areas Of Cognition For 3-5 Year Olds

Language Parents who openly talk to their children by involving them in conversations using a rich vocabulary that a child can understand, will help enhance their child’s language development. Using positive language also gives children the confidence to express themselves.

Memory Taking in so much new information and remembering it all can be difficult for a child. Children of this age are very visual and visual depictions are one way of helping them to remember things. Storytelling also helps them remember things that are meaningful and personal to them.

As with memory, there are so many things fighting for your child’s attention. Children of this age need guidance and structure to help them focus on the important things. Use simple rules to help them select important information from distractions.

Problem Solving Problem solving at this age is factual and rule based and comes about by grouping things, matching things and understanding order. Logical reasoning is used to solve problems as children start to look at problems from the perspective of others.

Psychomotor During this stage of development, children become highly skilled at controlling those finer movements such as lacing, cutting to a pattern and modelling with clay.

Learning Better Together StimuLearn™ is one element of this winning formula that supports Learning Better Together. We’ve developed a unique set of visual learning apps that make up the Nestlé ® NIDO 3+ StimuLearn™ kit. A mom’s love and stimulation makes all the difference when it comes to learning, so we’ve done what we can to make that process easier and more fun for you and your children.
