Maths champions is a programme developed by NDNA which aims to improve the maths skills of children in early years settings by training ‘maths champions’ within nurseries.

National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) is inviting applications from early years' providers to take part in a research trial to evaluate the maths champions programme. The maths champion should be a senior member who is responsible for the quality of maths provision.
