Mathematics Learning in Early Childhood: Paths Toward Excellence and Equity
Early childhood mathematics is vitally important for young children's present and future educational success. Research has demonstrated that virtually all young children have the capability to learn and become competent in mathematics. Furthermore, young children enjoy their early informal experiences with mathematics. Unfortunately, many children's potential in mathematics is not fully realized, especially those children who are economically disadvantaged. This is due, in part, to a lack of opportunities to learn mathematics in early childhood settings or through everyday experiences in the home and in their communities. Improvements in early childhood mathematics education can provide young children with the foundation for school success.
Handbook of Best Practices in Aboriginal Early Childhood Programs Book

The Elders of the community can contribute valuable expertise to these programs. Funding is required for First Nations governments and organizations to establish, staff, and operate early childhood education programs.
