Maths

Maths in early years.

 

Mathematics (maths) is an important part of learning for all children in the early years and receiving a good grounding in maths is an essential life skill. 


As well as numeracy, it helps skills such as problem solving, understanding and using shapes and measure and developing their own spatial awareness.

It helps children to recognise, create and describe patterns, which is essential for early problem solving skills. 

Introducing maths to children from an early age helps to develop their understanding of all elements of problem solving and reasoning in a broad range of contexts. 
All children can be successful with maths provided they are given the opportunities to understand it in a way that makes sense to them


Ensuring children are engaged, motivated and thinking critically for themselves is vital for mathematics. From birth, children have a keen interest in the world around them, but to have the confidence to explore it they need the support from adults around them.
