Unlocking Potential: How to Nurtures Early Numeracy Skills for Preschoolers

Carlingford Early Learning Centre (ELC) prides itself on providing a nurturing environment where preschoolers can not only grow and learn but also excel in their early numeracy skills.

One of the key aspects that set Carlingford ELC apart is the incorporation of numeracy skills into the daily routine of preschoolers, setting a strong foundation for number recognition and mathematical understanding.

Early numeracy skills are crucial in a child’s development as they form the building blocks for more advanced mathematical concepts in the future. By introducing these skills at a young age, children are better equipped to understand and engage with numbers in a meaningful way.

Childcare Numeracy Epping

At Carlingford ELC, children have the opportunity to engage in various activities that promote numeracy skills development. From counting games to shape recognition exercises, each activity is carefully designed to be age-appropriate and engaging for the young learners.

5 Fun Math-Based Activities for Preschoolers and Toddlers

Interactive math games can make learning fundamental math concepts enjoyable. Websites like CoolMath4Kids offer a variety of games that cover topics from basic arithmetic to more complex math puzzles, making it a great resource for children to practice and improve their math skills in a playful environment.

Board games that require counting, strategy, and critical thinking can subtly boost math skills. Games like Math Bingo and Sum Swamp are excellent for practicing addition, subtraction, and number recognition. Check out “Count Your Chickens” – we love playing this at our childcare centre!

Cooking and baking are practical ways to introduce concepts of measurement and fractions. Following recipes together can help children understand the practical application of math in daily life.

Creating math crafts, like geometric shapes from paper or a homemade abacus, can help children visualize and understand mathematical concepts. Teaching ideas provides a range of math craft activities and projects suitable for various age groups, encouraging learning through creativity.

Taking math outside can make learning feel like a new adventure. Activities like measuring the height of trees using shadows, counting the number of petals on flowers to discuss symmetry, or creating a hopscotch game to practice number sequences can all be fun, math-related outdoor activities. Websites like Let’s Go Outside ( offer ideas for outdoor educational activities.
