Let's visit Numberland
An emotive, playful early math concept on numeracy+
= conceptual understanding of numbers/shapes + language + relevant soft skills + natural development
Can be flexibly and creatively applied in any pre-primary, preschool, reception, pre-k, kindergarten, at home.
Welcome to Numberland!
'Let's visit Numberland' is an embracing, open and proven early years concept for children as of 4 years, contributing to numeracy, literacy and important skills. The concept is individually applied by teachers in preschool, reception class, pre-k or kindergarten, and by parents at home. Numberland's success has been proven both scientifically and in practice. Due to its flexibility and because children all over the world have a lot in common, 'Numberland' started to find its way from Germany to other countries (see list below).
We feel honored to be approached by professionals from other countries who regard 'Let's visit Numberland' a valuable contribution to a good social and academic development of their children. These people work with Numberland themselves and help to communicate the concept within their languages.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you!
