Emergent Literacy & Numeracy

friendsA question that crosses the minds of many parents with young children; does literacy and numeracy matter in an early education space?

We believe it does. Here’s why:

  • Research tells us the years between birth and five are the most transformational time in a human being’s life.
  • Exposure to emergent literacy and numeracy empowers the transition for children entering their first year of school.
  • Literacy is vitally important – it allows numeracy to find its place within thinking and learning.

Our question is: what are early learning spaces doing to support this development?

At Thinkers.inq our fundamental task is to draw out and lead forth, from the most impressionable years and beyond.

Every child leaves Thinkers.inq with a deep level of familiarity and appropriate application of  numeracy and literacy skills. The key ideas behind this are:

  • All children need to experience purposeful exploration of emergent literacy and numeracy skill development to access life in full
  • This exploration occurs through purposeful play so that wellbeing is at the heart of the experience
  • The purpose of this strategy is to empower children transitioning into life
