Abstract

This resource has been developed to support early years practitioners as they engage with babies, young children, and parents/carers in the exciting world of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
Within the non-statutory Birth to Five Matters (2021, p6) guidance, reference is made to the sector’s responsibilities under the United Nations Sustainability Goals and UNESCO Education for Sustainable Development. This document will support practitioners and parents to engage with the sustainability development goals (SDGs), learning more about our responsibilities to each other and the world in which we live.
There are 17 SDGs, and this introduction draws your attention to SDG 12, specifically 12.8.1. This target is key overall: Extent to which (i) global citizenship education and (ii) education for sustainable development (including climate change education) are mainstreamed in (a) national education policies; (b) curricula; (c) teacher education; and (d) student assessment.
Starting Early Matters and this resource is full of fun ideas, activities and experiences that promote the creativity and curiosity of young children.
