Studies have shown that early years maths exposure helps children be a huge help towards success in all areas later life. We can help our tiny tots become a little mathematician by having an everyday conversation about maths concepts. Start these conversations by observing and talking about the shapes in your environment, count things that you see and spot and recognise numbers in your everyday environment.
