Designed for three to five year olds, Let’s Count helps to build science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) into early learning. Let’s Count emphasises mathematics in everyday life, helping families and young children experiencing disadvantage to see maths as relevant, stimulating and fun. Through Let’s Count, families and early childhood educators will develop the confidence and skills to support children’s understanding of mathematical concepts, using play and other day-to-day experiences. It will help children to develop stronger skills and positive attitudes towards mathematics; a recipe for future success.
