Virtual Event: Nurturing Problem Solvers: 

Supporting Early Math Skills in a Toddler/Preschool Setting

November 30th, 2:00-3:00 PM ET 

Research tells us that early math skills are a powerful predictor of overall school achievement. But what does “early math” look like for toddlers and young preschoolers? It looks like Problem Solvers. Join Rebecca Parlakian and Jie-Qi Chen as they share ways you can bring playful learning to your toddler/preschool program. Explore early numeracy activities that spark curiosity, joy, and mastery across six math domains, and discover how equity principles are a key part of early math instruction.

As a result of attending this webinar, learners will be able to:

  1. Define the sub-domains of early math learning.
  2. Explain how principles of equity can be embedded into early math instruction.
  3. Describe play-based experiences that support and nurture early math development for toddlers/preschoolers
