“There is more to learning to count than knowing your numbers and being able to say them in order. Children can learn to say 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 from memory without ever needing to know what these words mean.” – Dr Amanda Gummer
Young children learn by repetition. For us this may seem boring, but for them it brings security and structure in an uncharted world. So every opportunity to count things from an early age is important.
