Erikson's Early Math Collaborative | What in the world is subitizing?
Did you know that Mary Crane Center has partnered with the renowned Erikson Institute for many years in countless ways? Our teachers and parents have received degrees, certifications and other professional development through the programs of Erikson. One very special initiative Mary Crane’s teachers have engaged in is Erikson’s Early Math Collaborative.

We at Mary Crane know that aside from counting, number recognition, and naming two-dimensional shapes, math is often given little or no attention during children’s preschool years.  We also know that mathematical competence needs to be established long before middle school. Thus, we developed the formula that equipped Mary Crane staff to ensure that every one of our kids has the opportunity to engage in the joy of math!
