Mini Monkeys

for under 5 year olds

Our >> facebook page << is set up to be a number fun hub for under 5’s.

A place for us and others to share ideas and activities that are going on in and around York. 

Mini Monkeys aims to help your little one do more than just recite numbers in sequence. 

We aim to help your child achieve what will be expected, by school, by the time they reach 5 years old. 

This includes:-

  • Recognise numerals 1 to 5
  • Successfully count up to 10 objects/movements
  • Understand the meaning of “more” and “less”
  • Can order lengths, heights, weights and capacities 
  • Recognises shapes and their characteristics

We share weekly ideas on what carers/parents can do to make little ones enjoy their introduction to Maths. 

We have set up activities in and around York that are affordable and accessible for all. 

Mini Activities

All our mini activities rely on donations. There is a donation pot available in each of our mini activity locations.
