Learning math skills when a child is young should be fun and entertaining.  Little ones learn best through play.  There are several key areas to focus on during age 3-5 that can make later learning easier.

Patterns are at the heart of learning math. Having a strong understanding of simple patterns when a child is young will help them be able to see and manipulate larger patterns in higher level math.

As students advance in their understanding of patterns, they will create charts, graphs, and tables to recognize them. 

Patterns are all around us in the natural world. Students will be able to see patterns in music, art, and literature.  The understanding of patterns leads to well thought-out educated guesses and logical trains of thought.  Here is some quick to use resources for the preschool classrooms and homes of preschoolers.
