Developing numeracy skills early gives children a foundation for their learning and development. It prepares them for daily life, including general problem solving, measuring and developing their own spatial awareness. It also teaches them how to use and understand shapes. At Camberley Preschool, our children are introduced to numbers, shapes, patterns, size, time and measurement. These activities range from individual to small and large group activities. Learning of numeracy can also occur throughout the day, in children’s daily routines or play.
