Jane Jiwa - Founder
The first Numbers Nursery class was opened in 2014. As a maths and personal finance trainer, Jane became increasingly aware of the importance of early and positive exposure to mathematics. Adults in her maths classes would too often say “I wasn’t good at maths”, or “Maths was boring at school”.
Since starting her own family, Jane was keen to inspire her daughter to become interested in Early Years mathematics by making it fun through play, exploring, and being active and creative. As Jane’s daughter has grown, she can see the positive influence of early year maths and the increased confidence her daughter has to be ready for school. Jane now works part-time at a local nursery and has personally completed courses in Safeguarding and paediatric first aid, as well as starting an early years qualification.

Since the Numbers Nursery project began, Jane has recruited Early Years experts to design indoor and outdoor classes linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
