Mathematics in the Early Years book now launched

We’re excited to announce the launch of our brand new publication, Mathematics in the Early Years: A handy guide to supporting the development of children’s mathematical skills.

The latest in PACEY’s ‘handy guide’ series, it gives practitioners confidence to use mathematical language and show children that maths is part of life.

Written by early years maths expert Judith Dancer, and with a Foreword by National Numeracy, it shows how maths can be easily integrated into exciting and fun daily activities.

The book emphasises the importance of making mathematical thinking second nature in children and gives lots of examples of age appropriate games and activities. The book shows that maths needn’t be a subject that practitioners are wary of. Everyone can understand and model everyday mathematical concepts.

  • Supports the EYFS in England and the Welsh Foundation Phase
  • Great practical ideas for fun activities
  • Supports professionals’ confidence in maths

Carole Skinner, Early Years Maths Consultant and Founder Associate of Early Education, said:

“PACEY's book will provide wonderful support for all early years professionals and is a rich resource for ideas and ways to set up creative maths activities. In her book she identifies and explains the important experiences that young children need in order to develop mathematical thinking skills.

"A not to be missed resource book for all Early Years settings.”
