Let's Talk About Math

ZERO TO THREE is proud to announce new resources available for parents and caregivers to help them work with young children on early math skills, Let's Talk About Math!

Research has found that a strong understanding of early math concepts predicts both a child’s future math and literacy skills—and that the roots of early math skills begin developing from birth, through a young child’s everyday play and interactions with parents and caregivers.

This series of videos will demonstrate parent behaviors for interacting with infants and toddlers to help build the foundation of early math skills in the first 3 years of life. Each video will be accompanied by a handout to help parents support these skills through playful activities at home and on-the-go. The videos and handouts are available in English and Spanish.

Together with Too Small to Fail and Highlights for Children, ZERO TO THREE has produced tools to talk about developmentally appropriate math concepts with children.

The first three videos focusing on shapes and counting are now available, with more to come later this year.
