This research examines developmental changes of Number Sense and the existence and changes of a Size Congruity Effect (SCE) in the non symbolical numerical comparison task. In this study children at the age of four and five were tested in the months between February and June 2009 and between January and March 2010. The study specifically tested whether a SCE would decrease within one year. Furthermore the influence of the number of months attended in school on a SCE was examined. The results show that in both samples a SCE was found, but did not decrease within one year. In addition, there was no evidence that the number of months attended in school facilitated a decrease of a SCE. These findings suggest that four and five year old children show little progression in comparison skills and do not achieve automatisation of number knowledge.
