Early Home Numeracy Beneficial

Parent Interventions

A study done by Purdue University researchers has shown that there is a direct relation between the home numeracy environment and early numeracy skills in children. A study done among125 children in the 3 to 5 years age group and their parents showed that frequency of engaging children in direct numeracy activities helped children attain mathematical skills at the preschool level. It was found that preschoolers’ maths language knowledge was predictive of their early numeracy skills. Results suggest that math language mediates the relation between the direct home numeracy environment and numeracy skills. These findings provide evidence that the relation between the direct home numeracy environment and early numeracy may be explained by preschoolers’ maths language knowledge.
