    Abstract

    The introduction of the Early Years Learning Framework and the Australian Curriculum - Mathematics in Australian preschools and primary schools has caused early childhood educators to reconsider what may be appropriate levels of mathematics knowledge to expect from children as they start school. This paper reports on initial data from an extensive evaluation of an early mathematics intervention and asks whether the expectations of young children recorded in the Australian Curriculum - Mathematics are realistic.
