This study aims to investigate the effects of a home connection program in promoting parental mathematical interaction, teacher-parent cooperative relationship, and 3-year-olds’ mathematical ability. Forty-two 3-year-olds and their parents, from two childcare centers, were sampled; 21 children from one center served as the experimental group, and 21 children from the other center served as the comparison group. In order to investigate significant differences between the two groups, independent and paired t-tests were carried out after 26 sessions of the home connection program over 9 weeks applied to the experimental group. As a result, the home connection program was shown to contribute to the enhancement of parents’ mathematical interaction, parent-teacher cooperative relationship, and 3-year-olds’ mathematical ability. This study can make an important contribution to further research on the development of more practical home connection programs for improving a developmentally appropriate home environment to aid children’s mathematics learning.

Call for Papers: Asia-Pacific Journal of Research in Early Childhood Education (APJRECE)
Special Issue Deadline: January 15, 2016
Asia-Pacific Journal of Research in Early Childhood Education (APJRECE) is an official publication of the Pacific Early Childhood Education Research Association (PECERA) that is dedicated to disseminating and supporting research in early childhood education within the Pacific area.
APJRECE is released three times a year in January, May, and September. In 2016, the second issue of Volume 10 will be a special issue. The topic for the special issue is “Power of Play in Young Children’s Growth and Learning”. The Guest Editor for the special issue is Dr. Wonyoung Rhee, Professor Emerita at Chung-Ang University, Korea.
We are seeking reports of current research on this topic, papers that address issues in the application of play research, and papers that review a specific research area of young children’s play and are especially informative about studies needed to fill knowledge gaps. The manuscripts for the special issue should be submitted online by January 15, 2016, following the guidelines described on the journal website. Please visit the homepage of Asia-Pacific Journal of Research in Early Childhood Education (www.apjrece.com,www.pecerajournal.com), and you will find not only full details on aims and scope, editorial policy, and paper submission but the orange colored button, named Manuscript Management System of APJRECE, for paper submission.
We hope you will seriously consider APJRECE for your scholarship.
