In this study, the relationship between preschool children's mathematical abilities and listening skills was examined. Relational survey model, one of the quantitative research methods, was used in the research. The study group of the research consists of 100 children attending kindergartens and preschool classrooms affiliated to the Uşak Provincial Directorate of National Education. “Early Mathematics Ability Test-3” and “Listening Skills Scale” were used for data collection in the research. In the study, it was concluded that there is no statistically meaningful relationship between the listening skills and math abilities of children in early childhood. The study contributes to the related field in terms of examining the relationship between children's listening skills and early mathematics abilities in early childhood. The limitations of this study are that the research was conducted with 100 children, the quantitative method was not supported by qualitative methods, and the data consisted of quantitative data. According to the results of the research, it is recommended that receptive and expressive language skills should be evaluated together for studies that deal with mathematical ability and listening skills together.
