School Location and Development of Numeric Skills among Pupils

The National Policy on Education (2004) described pre-primary education as the education given in an educational institution to children prior to their entering the primary school. the goals of pre-primary education as listed in the National Policy on Education (FRN, 2004), include: to teach the rudiments of numbers, letter, colours, shapes forms etc, through play. However, the development of numeracy skills plays an important role at pre-primary schools.

De Lange (2003) noted that mathematics literacy is emerging as the knowledge to know and apply basic mathematics in our everyday lives. It is important that children and young people in the educational system will be able to understand and use mathematics in everyday lives and in further learning (DES, 201). A lot of parents have  reported that  inability for their wards at this level  of education to exhibit adequate numeric skills. Hence, this study is therefore conducted to investigate the extent to which schools location could significantly related to the development of numeric skills among pupils in pre-primary schools.
