Abstract: 

Some elementary ideas of combinatorics and its role in supporting children's development of beginning probability ideas and problem-solving skills are explored. A review of studies that addressed children's combinatorial reasoning is then presented. To conclude, ways in which children's access to powerful ideas are considered.
