By the time children get to preschool, they are starting to develop an understanding of of what a number is and to recognise the number of objects in small groups.

Counting is probably the most important skill your child will learn at this age.

By the end of pre-k, they should be able to count to 10 reliably, and understand the 1:1 correspondence of numbers and objects, knowing that the last number they counted tells them how many objects they are counting.

As well as developing their number sense, they are beginning to understand the language of position, and can tell the relative position of objects using words like 'above', 'below', 'next to'.

At this stage, children should be allowed to explore and play as much as possible with different materials, shapes, puzzles, and get an idea of how they work.

When comparing objects, children can tell which object is bigger or smaller than another. They can tell when two objects are the same and when they are different.
