We want to help people manage their money, improve their environment and prepare them for employment. We realise that we can't achieve this on our own and we need to work with others. One of our partners is Leeds City Council who help deliver our Count Me In programme.
Using books and games this engaging resource for pre-school children is accessed through Leeds libraries and Children’s Centres in a series of bags. The bags can be borrowed by parents and carers for children according to their age - under one year, two to three years and four to five years old. The bags will help develop children's understanding of mathematical concepts using story and rhyme. There is also an online version of Count Me In 123. Its colourful and engaging resources focus on the key areas of number recognition, shapes and pattern, size and measurement and counting.
Count Me In Primary is suitable for children aged 5 to 11 years and can be accessed through Leeds public or school libraries. Three well- stocked learning bags specifically for primary school age children help build their numeracy skills.
