Welcome to Let’s visit Numberland

… where the numbers themselves teach us number sense, subitising, numeracy, and so much more

⭐ That joyful idea sparking children & unburdening teachers
That emotional place packed with structured maths

… To just make the GOOD THINGS HAPPEN!

⭐ Because of how smart, affectionate, and efficiently Numberland interweaves relevant maths and the emotional world of 3 to 5yo children! 

⭐ Because Numberland helps children understand, structure, and organise!

⭐ Because Numberland is about so much more than ‘just’ maths!

⭐ Because Numberland improves the chances of ALL children and contributes to a happy childhood!  

⭐ Because Numberland is not a strict programme and not bound to fancy resources!

⭐ Because teachers can make use of cross-curricular synergy effects!

This most efficient, yet easy going approach started as a widely acclaimed German research project, turned into a standard early years approach, and is increasingly finding international ‘travellers’.

Hi from Numberland Germany!

My name is Barbara Schindelhauer, I’m co-author and international teacher trainer of Let’s visit Numberland.

I unburden you with pragmatic, hands-on ideas for this joyful approach, to spark and support the self-learning processes in your children. Not only is a thorough mathematical foundation crucial, it is also a tremendous chance for the other vital areas of children’s development: language, concentration, social and motor skills, creativity, to name just a few.

To ensure many children benefit from Numberland, it has been my passion to promote it among teachers worldwide since its beginnings 2004. Therefore, I joined up with Dr. Gerhard Friedrich, original Numberland author and University lecturer for early childhood.

Let me be your tour guide

It is my objective to provide you with all you need to embark on this joyful yet also efficient co-adventure, according to their individual needs.

Be it based on the handbook only, or a training (self-learning, online, or on-site), with self-made or ready-made materials – the scope of travelling to Numberland is wide and colourful!

The fire Numberland started 2004 in my own children (3y, 5y) jumped over on me and hasn’t stopped ever since.

Let me ignite you, too!

What the field says

Preschools appreciate how easily Numberland integrates and unburdens them in their educational tasks. They value the holistic approach, making children engage and benefit in terms of those important soft skills, too.  

Primary teachers note higher base levels, more motivation and engagement – also among children from socially or educationally deprived children or those with a migrant background. They recommend Numberland as a useful and sufficient tool to prepare children for formal tuition.  

International schools esteem the additional impact on second language acquisition.

And the children? They simply love it 🙂
