Preschool Math

Preschoolers are naturally self-motivated and active explorers who learn best through discovery and personal experience with hands-on materials in their environment. We create opportunities that allow children to learn through direct experiences such as sorting, comparing and classifying. Hands-on lessons take learning a step further, rather than having children acquire math skills in a rote fashion. We do not use duplicated sheets (dittos and workbooks) in any of the math activities because they are not considered a tangible vehicle for learning that children can engage with. The math activities we present reflect the diverse needs of preschool children, some of whom may still rely on their senses to learn about the world and others who have mastered number recognition and symbols. Our math curriculum promotes the development of mathematical vocabulary, awareness and an understanding of real world uses for foundation math concepts and geometry.
