There is usually a lot of excitement that comes when you first discover your little one can count! Now this might only be 1-2-3 but it is an achievement and one to celebrate. Children get great joy in showing off their new found skill, especially when it gets quite the response from you. As they grow, children need to be exposed to lots of experiences with making, counting, drawing and talking about numbers. It’s important to highlight connections for your child, by explaining to them how numbers and counting are a part of everyday life.
