ABC Early Numeracy Project

The Early Numeracy Project is funded through the Government’s Area-Based Childhood Programme (ABC) and aims to improve children's early numeracy outcomes in Dublin’s Docklands and East Inner City area. 

The project supports early childhood care and education settings and schools to plan and support children’s mathematical learning through play-based activities while linking this to Aistear, the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework and Síolta, The Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education.

It also promotes and supports parental involvement in their child’s development, learning and education by providing a variety of home-based activities for parents.

The ABC Early Numeracy Project uses an exciting and innovative approach to working in partnership with children, parents, educators and the wider community in the Docklands and East Inner City, and builds on earlier work done through the National Early Years Access Initiative (NEYAI) during 2011- 2014.
