    Abstract

    During 2009-2010, the South Australian Department of Education and Children's Services implemented a mathematics learning and teaching program for educators in preschools andthe first year of school in response to national curriculum agendas. The Early Years Numeracy Pilot Project (EYNPP) used an inquiry model of professional education led by early childhood educators who were designated as numeracy leaders. This paper analyses the impact of EYNPP on the knowledge, skills, confidence, and pedagogical approaches of these numeracy leaders and on the development of powerful mathematical pedagogy in their own settings and those of the colleagues whom they were leading.
