Research supports the notion that young children have an intuitive sense of informal mathematics. As an early childhood educator, you play an important role in bridging children's informal understanding of mathematics with daily experiences offered through your program's learning environment. This training takes a chronological view of mathematics development in children, beginning at birth and going through Kindergarten. It will offer specific teaching suggestions for each age group based on the Early Learning Guidelines for Infants and Toddlers, the Guidelines for Preschool Learning Experiences, and the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework for Mathematics.

We will explore effective ways to reduce and resolve conflict, and apply these techniques using some typical early-childhood scenarios. Participants will discover how specific strategies may improve relationships with co-workers and with the families with which we work.
