Please bring this to the attention of any early childhood education centres that may be eligible.
Let’s Count is a program that supports early years’ educators to develop children’s skills by noticing, exploring, and talking about mathematics. Over the next 4 years, the Smith Family, funded by the Commonwealth Department of Education and Training, will be expanding this program in early childhood education centres that are based in or near low socio-economic areas in NSW, Qld, SA, NT, Tas. and WA. Early childhood educators involved will take part in professional development that increases their knowledge, skills and confidence in working with and supporting parents and carers to engage their children in learning mathematics and numeracy skills.

The Smith Family is also looking for early years’ mathematics educators who have some free time and the skills to facilitate Let’s Count educator sessions.
