Number Start is a study run by researchers at Loughborough University, who are interested in the development of children’s early number skills. Many children struggle with learning numbers and mathematics at school. In order to help all children develop good number skills we need to understand more about how they develop. Our study is investigating preschool children’s number skills, and testing how we might help improve children’s number skills through simple activities.
