Likewise in the educational process, for children aged 4 to 6 years can be formally pursued in kindergarten, and is expected to obtain physical-motor, cognitive, social, and emotional stimuli in accordance with their age level. Every child has differences, so students who cannot learn as they should are called learning difficulties. Some learning difficulties experienced by young children are reading, writing and arithmetic. Especially in learning to count, mathematics is very useful for developing thinking processes in early childhood. It also cannot be separated from the role of parents who provide physical and psychological needs at the beginning of a child's life. Therefore the purpose of this study is to find out the cause of a 5-year-old child who cannot memorize numbers 1-10. The method in this study uses a qualitative research design with a single case experience with the provision of interventions, namely the introduction of numbers with the media card and assistance and counseling to parents.
