Abstract

This paper (one of three) contributes to the Research Symposium, “Strengths approaches in early childhood mathematics education” by providing an illustration of how an early childhood centre adopts a strengths approach to mathematics education for birth to three-year-old children. A case illustration is drawn from a current Australian Research Council-funded study focusing on mathematics education for children under three years of age. The case is analysed and described using a five-step strengths-based framework.
