Let's Count supports parents and early childhood educators to have the skills and confidence so they can develop the maths skills of the children in their care. The program emphasizes maths in the everyday, and helps children to see maths as relevant, stimulating and fun, which sets them up for future success.
The Origin Foundation has supported The Smith Family to expand the program through a four year partnership (2011-2015) valued at $1.6 million. In that time it has reached 8,500 children, 4,500 parents and more than 300 educators across more than 17 Australian communities.
