About this Event

Let’s Count is an innovative program aimed at educators, designed to improve the numeracy skills of children 3-5 years old. The professional development sessions will give you practical skills to work with parents and children in early numeracy.

Learn strategies that will assist parents to explore and provoke numeracy learning potential in everyday routines and play of young children. The session will also be an opportunity to share knowledge with your peers in a friendly professional environment.

What to expect from the professional development sessions:

Session 1 - 6th February 2019:

• Explore mathematical ideas and how to use materials that enable you to explore mathematics every day, such as songs, books, games and regular daily activities

• Explore strategies to engage parents and family members in activities focused on children’s learning and development

• Network and share ideas with other educators to encourage families to document and present their mathematics learning stories to other families and educators in parent sessions

Session 2 - 3rd April 2019:

• Explore and analyse the impact of the family gatherings and activities for assisting parents to explore and discuss mathematics with their children

• Develop an action plan for future activities related to Let’s Count in your centre

What do I have to do?

• Attend 2 full day Let’s Count professional development training sessions.

• Conduct Let’s Count parent sessions at your centre, utilising the skills learnt in the training.
