Liz, Deputy Head Pre- Prep

A great course for us to re-think how we approach our maths provision in the setting. It has made us aware of what maths skills the children will be learning when they get into school and in turn we are now ensuring that we provide play based activities which will help lay the foundations for those later skills.

Janet, Manager of a Pre-School

As a nanny from outside of the UK I was not familiar with how maths is taught at school and in nurseries here in the UK - this course has taught me so much and I am now very confident in supporting the children I care for and we have had lots of fun with some of the activities suggested- I really enjoyed this course- THANKS!

Anna- Nanny

Before we did this course we focused solely on the EYFS for our maths - it has helped us to consider what comes later on for our children and consider how we can help prepare the children for this in an age appropriate manner.
