Research on children’s learning in the first five years of life validates the importance of early experiences in mathematics for lasting positive outcomes (Bowman, Donovan& Burns, 2001). Through The STEM school’s curriculum, children develop the ability to reason mathematically and become increasingly sophisticated in the ability to recognize and analyze the mathematics inherent in the world around them.Our students learn shapes, number concepts, spatial awareness, measurement,patterns and sorting, and logic (Baroody, Bajwa & Eiland, 2009). Children’s early mathematical experiences play a significant role in the development of their
understanding of mathematics and serve as a foundation for their cognitive development.
