Little Scientists

Little Scientists is a not-for-profit initiative of FROEBEL Australia Limited, funded and supported by the Australian Government, with the aim to provide young children at early education and care services across Australia with hands-on, age-appropriate educational experiences in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

The initiative requires the engagement of local network partners who deliver the Little Scientists program to services within their local communities. These partners are geographically located across Australia and include long day care services, family day care services, after-school care programs, preschools and kindergartens as well as independent and religious schools, local and state governments.
