Paper Highlights

  • The relation between specific home numeracy environment practices and children's numeracy skills were compared across preschool aged children (3 and 4 years old). 
  • Complex home numeracy environment practices were related to numeracy skills of older children, but basic home numeracy environment practices were only related to numeracy skills with younger children until controlling for parental education.
  •  More targeted measurement of the home numeracy environment may be needed in order to fully assess its impact on the development of mathematics cognition.
Keywords: mathematics development; numeracy; preschool; home numeracy environment
