Over the past year there have been many opinions expressed by trainers, practitioners, managers and advisers about whether you need to have specific areas within your setting or not. Thought it was about time that I added my thoughts into the mix !
More specifically I wanted to look at whether we need a specific maths area in our early years settings. Some have been told they definately do need them and others use the arguement that if maths is everywhere then why do we need them at all? My views on the matter have developed as a direct result of our own journey in our setting to provide the best maths provision we can.
