This guidance is designed to support young children from birth to 60 months to develop a sense of what number means, how they can use and apply number skills and concepts in their every day life.

The key skills and concepts needed to support children’s number sense are:

  • Number language
  • Counting
  • Number patterns
  • Representations and graphical mark making
  • Number problem solving

These skills and concepts cannot be developed in isolation and therefore, this guidance recognises that young children will play, explore, actively learn, create and think critically across all areas of learning. It also acknowledges that young children’s learning is nurtured through a reflective and supportive learning community both in the setting, at home and in the wider environment.
