About Us - Our Mission
Every child is unique and we know that no two children learn the same way. For over 30 years, we've used our world of educational resources (Maths, Literacy and Science) to provide teachers with the tools to become the architects of each child's individual education journey.
The teacher is the most important person in the classroom - inspiring, cultivating and stimulating learning. We understand that teachers are extremely busy and there is a lot to be done to educate young minds. That is why we create and provide a huge range of resources that save teachers time.
Our commitment to you
With a streamlined Australian distribution centre, Abacus is committed to being fast, efficient and responsive with all our deliveries, and we promise to deliver 100% on this commitment.
Our dedicated staff go above and beyond to make sure our customers are always happy and we extensively research the products we sell to ensure that you will always be satisfied with the quality of what you receive. We will never compromise on quality.
Abacus is based in Perth, Western Australia but our delivery network extends across the country. No matter whether you live in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide or Brisbane (or even further afield in regional areas) our shipping network ensures that you have access to the latest educational supplies and products.
PrimaryConnections® and Abacus
We recognise the importance of science education in children. That's why in 2011 we became the exclusive Australia-wide distributor of the PrimaryConnections® units, an innovative program developed by the Australian Academy of Science. This partnership creates a complete solution for the classroom providing all the resources you need to confidently deliver a whole school science program. As of 2021 PrimaryConnections® resources have moved to a digital platform and the printed resources are no longer available. Please contact PrimaryConnections® for more information.
With substantial commitment to research and development, Abacus has carefully created the Abacus Science Kits. These kits are designed for use with both the PrimaryConnections® digital and printed units.Primary Connections® is a trademark of Australian Academy of Science and not affiliated with Abacus Educational Suppliers.
