Summary Interviews were held with 64 professionals in childcare centres. This paper reports on their responses to 3 questions seeking their perceptions of mathematical thinking in very young children. Generally, the interviewees were found to have a good sense of mathematical concepts relevant to babies and toddlers, and they cited evidence of young children’s mathematical development. It is concluded that this practical knowledge would provide a strong foundation for further professional development.
