The purpose of this study was to gain an understanding of the factors that children perceive as influencing attitudes towards numeracy, and to explore the primary care providers’ observations of children’s attitudes and responses. The participants were children aged 4-7 years, in three primary schools in the United Kingdom, parents and primary teachers. The research suggested negative attitudes toward numeracy develop in early education and are influenced by multiple factors.
