Mathematics and Early Mathematical Discovery in the CT ELDS

This series of videos were developed to support the implementation of the Connecticut Early Learning and Development Standards. They describe children’s early mathematical development and provide examples of how early childhood professionals can both explicitly teach math skills and support their development through daily routines and play. These videos were funded by the Connecticut Office of Early Childhood.
