Sumario: This article results from research entitled: Improvement of the teaching and learning of mathematics in early childhood education: A view from the teaching, whose overall objective was to analyze preschool teacher training, related to teaching and learning mathematics processes, strengths, weaknesses and needs to generate a methodology that can strengthen through teacher training, including self-training. This reflection since management is presented as a challenge that this discipline must be assumed to improve mathematics teaching - learning processes in early childhood education. Leading aspects training such as: courses methodology to train teachers, mechanisms used more frequently aspects of training processes; as well as, professional development and self- training in academic staff of early childhood education. Some actions aimed at changing school culture are briefly describe around learning process in mathematics, where school culture; specifically, educational management assumes a fundamental role. To conclude, the need for academic institutions provide more comprehensive training, and other institutions involved in professional development for mathematics teachers to improve processes of disclosure and training; aside from, educational management takes these processes into policy priorities.
