Children learn money skills in new project

Children as young as two-years-old are being encouraged to learn about maths through a project led by the University and involving local schools and nurseries.

Money and Maths is a free event in Leicester with an exhibition of games, role play and activities that can promote children’s understanding and skills when using money. It runs from now until Friday 25 September.

The exhibition is being co-ordinated by Dr Rose Griffiths from our School of Education, along with early years practitioners from many schools, nurseries and other settings, and has been funded by ‘Greater Than The Sum’, a co-operative organisation aiming to make maths more accessible to children and families in Leicester.

The event takes place at: Leicester City Pre-school Learning Alliance, Knighton Lane, Leicester LE2 8BE (next to Lansdowne Children’s Centre).

Opening times (until 25 September):

Tuesdays, 2pm till 7pm
