Dear Successful Scissors Friends


If you want to boost your child's reading, writing and learning skills that he or she needs to excel in life, then check out this brand new Successful Scissors Programme!

Wondering how an online programme can help you help your child in real life?

Do you worry that you do not have the tech skills to participate and learn from an online programme?


And do you wonder how in the world will developing fine and gross motor skills, as well as physical stamina, help your child overcome academic and social challenges?


We know the feelings and we understand why you might have questions.


Hello, my name is Melanie Harwood and as a mother of a child with learning challenges, I know first-hand the benefits of fine and gross motor skill activities before a child starts school and how being able to write well can have on one's life skills and ability to learn. In my efforts to help my child, I have met incredible educators who notice just how many pupils come to school without the basic, core skills they need to succeed.


One of those expert educators is Headteacher, Fiona Cowan, who was inspired by my Start-Bee Handwriting Programme (for helping those who are already at the age of being able to write) when she decided to tackle the challenge of children coming into primary school with poorly developed skills and to create the solution...the Mini-Bees Programme. As part of the Mini-Bees Pre-Writing Programme, Fiona and I also give you an easy-to-access and easy-to-follow multi-media Successful Scissors Programme. Successful Scissors improves your child's fine and gross motor skills, eye-hand coordination, physical stamina and frustration tolerance so that they can master the skills of reading, writing, and learning.


I realise that cutting with scissors is not the first skill that comes to your mind when you think of building blocks for academic and career success. The truth is that cutting with scissors is to reading and writing like crawling is to need the one before the other. So give your child the cutting edge and check out our Successful Scissors Programme!

Exactly What You Are Getting:

Successful Scissors Prepares Your Child Or Pupil for Reading and Writing...


Unlike other programmes that just give you worksheets to figure out, print out and deliver on your own, the Mini-Bees' Successful Scissors programme offers you a multi-media approach.


For example, Successful Scissors gives you a professionally filmed series of videos. One series of videos is a Master Class to teach you, the carer or educator, how to help your child or pupil. The other series of videos is a child-centred, peer-to-peer presentation in which my daughter, Hannah-Jane, and Fiona's four year old son, Arben, guide young children through the step-by-step instructions on how to perform the various activities.


Both series give you the most effective form of learning, which is peer-to-peer. With the innovative use of creative audio, visual and verbal cues, your pupil receives intriguing and fun-filled guidance to develop those critical life skills.  


For those teachers, tutors, parents and carers who also want written information from the Master Class training videos, Successful Scissors gives you transcripts for you to download.


Successful Scissors Provides You with the Structure You Need to Help Your Child or Pupil...


To help you help your child, we have set up Successful Scissors in small batches rather than in overwhelming volumes of information. This way, you can meet your child's learning pace and find exactly what you need, when you need it.

Are You Ready for Your Child to Stop Struggling and Start Succeeding? 

If you are tired and saddened by watching your child struggle to keep up with their peers and if you are frustrated by not knowing how to help them overcome their challenges, then we invite you to sign up for the Mini-Bees© Programme! To ensure your child develops the fine and gross motor skills they need to succeed, their core stamina and to prepare them for writing well too, so that they hit the ground running when they start school.
