Abstract—Mathematics for early-childhood (4-6 years old) is a tool that can be used to increase the thinking ability, support the children to increase various of intellectual potential, as well as a medium to increase various attitude and positive habitual, in order to apply the basic personality as early as possible, such as critical and creative thinking ability, diligent, self-supporting, scientific, rational, etc. This qualitative study investigated children’s tendency how their logical-mathematics intelligence work. It focused on analyzing how their abilities to understand the operational basics in mathematics with numbers and its principles, along with the sensitivity to see the pattern and cause-consequence relationship and its effectiveness. The subject is 5 children. The results explain that more than 50% of children intellectual potential has been formed since 4 years old and children can consider shapes, measurement, and things based on their interpretation and experiences.

Index Terms—Early childhood education, logical-mathematics intellegence, mathematics education, multiple intelegences.
