EARLY LEARNING

The California Mathematics Council (CMC) believes the first five years of children’s lives are a critical time for learning, and that parents play a critical role in supporting their children’s earliest mathematics learning. CMC wants to help parents give young children their first positive experiences in mathematics.

The booklet, Early Learning, Math at Home, and this Early Math Learning web site are CMC's way of supporting families—and organizations that work with families—in our efforts to give young children a wonderful start in learning mathematics.

This preK guide to mathematics education was written expressly with parents and guardians of children, birth to age five, as the primary audience. We ask your help in sharing Early Learning, Math at Home and its individual PDF articles, with the families of preschool, daycare, and children’s centers that you know and work with. Help the California Mathematics Council improve mathematics learning for all children!
