Course Description

Counting is something that we as adults do without thinking, yet for a child there are clear pre requistes before they can start to count meaningfully and identify numbers.

Learning to count is a child’s very first step into mathematics, and constitutes the most fundamental idea of that discipline. It helps in the acquisition of basic skills and number knowledge.

The course is therefore designed to equip the early child educator with the skills and knowledge to help our wonderful kids go through the activities of counting and numbers.
