PwC announces National Strategic Partnership with Little Scientists Australia.

Little Scientists Australia is excited and proud to announce that we have been chosen by PwC for a strategic relationship. As a not-for-profit organisation with the overarching objective of making high quality education accessible to all children we strongly identify with PwCs purpose ‘of building trust in society and solving important problems’.

‘We need better STEM content and skills development in the early years of education but it can be difficult to get support for spending because the economic payback doesn’t happen until the individual is through the education system and earning a wage. We’re working with Little Scientists to address the problem at the start’
PwC Managing Partner and STEM leader, Tony Peake.

Thank you to our amazing network partner, the Northern Territory Department for Education, for sharing their experiences at their Families as First Teachers conference. As you can see - Little Scientists forms a strong part of the educator's Early STEM learning journey! #EarlySTEM #littlescientists ... See MoreSee Less

The Families as First Teachers Program (FaFT) is so crucial because parents and families are children’s first and most important teachers. Yesterday, 85 educators from across the Territory took part in the 2017 FaFT Conference. It was a wonderful day, a great chance to share ideas and experiences - and most of all, a lot of fun!!! Being ready for day one of school is essential for kids’ later success. It shapes a child’s ability to thrive at school, stay healthy and be socially connected. The Territory Labor Government is expanding this program and have already opened five new sites in 2017, taking the total number to 32. However, there’s still plenty to do and we plan to have 38 FaFT programs operating in remote and urban sites by December 2017.
