Introduction to Family Child Care at Its Best: Building Numeracy Skills and Beyond

Family child care and family, friend, and neighbor providers are critical sources of support for working families. The Family Child Care at Its Best program delivers high-quality, research-based workshops that help home-based caregivers improve their knowledge, skills, and quality of care for working with mixed-age groups of children. In this session, we will explore highlights from the Family Child Care at Its Best "Building Numeracy Skills and Beyond" workshop. Participants will examine ways to provide a rich math environment for all children, and gain techniques that build developmentally appropriate math knowledge and skills in early childhood.
