The Woolworths ‘Earn & Learn’ program is back in 2017 and I’m so excited to get involved.
Sponsored by Woolworths
For those of you who don’t know, the Woolworths ‘Earn & Learn’ program supports schools and early learning centres all over Australia to receive a-maaazing educational resources in learning areas such as sport, mathematics, arts, science and technology.
It’s hard to believe that such a generous program exists and how easy it is for you and your community to get involved. Let me tell you more.
Our family do the bulk of our shopping at Woolworths supermarkets. For my husband Matt and I, we really like the quality of the fresh produce, the variety and value we get to help make our week run smoothly.
Our weekly supermarket shopping experience has become a whole lot more exciting for us, especially for our girls, because currently shoppers can earn 1 sticker for every $10 they spend in a Woolworths supermarket or online.. These stickers can be handed in at the store or to a participating school or early learning centre and have them redeemed for points that will then go towards valuable learning equipment. Amazing, right?
You might be interested to know that last year’s program saw 16,000 educational facilities get involved and over 450,000 individual educational items were delivered as a result. I don’t know about you, but I find that totally mind blowing. Just imagine the enormous benefit this has on children learning and having a greater opportunity to explore more of what may be of interest to them.
How to get involved
It’s so incredibly easy to get involved and start supporting your local community or make a direct contribution to your child’s school or early learning centre.
Once you’ve paid for your items at the cashier you will receive your stickers, which you can simply then pop in one of the Earn & Learn postal boxes located at the front of any Woolworths store. Local schools will most likely have their box labelled, but if you have no connection to any school you can randomly decide who you donate your stickers to or pop a sticker in each!
If your child’s school or early learning centre is participating in the ‘Earn & Learn’ program then they might also have a special box at a central location. You can simply drop your stickers into the box or add them to an ‘Earn & Learn’ sticker sheet and hand them in that way.
The Woolworths Earn & Learn program provides all communities with a simple way of contributing to local schools and early learning centres. All stickers collected from purchases made at a Woolworths store and online can make a huge impact and provide much needed and enjoyed education resources in sport, mathematics, science, arts and technology.
I love that you can donate your stickers in any box, my kids aren’t in school or any centres so it’s a nice feeling to be able to do a little random act of kindness!
Oh Ali, you’re totally right! What a great and simply way to do a random act of kindness!!! Love your thinking.

That’s such a good program for giving much needed resources to our schools
Every bit helps. Thanks Kate.
This is such a great idea, schools need all the support they can get!
Thank you Kate. Yes, I agree with you completely.
We are collecting stickers for our school too. Emma loves posting them in the box.
It’s great fun! My girls love collecting the stickers too.
We are shopping at Woollies and supporting the school where my kids go! The program is so valuable and a great initiative! Well done Woollies!
It’s such a simple way to give back.
Such an easy way to support our schools. My girls go to two different schools, so I love that I can put half the stickers in one box and half in the other
Brilliant and so simple. Thanks Danya.
This is the first year I’ve collected the stickers, I figure we are going to be at our primary school for the next 10+ years so everything helps!
It’s incredible how many great resources the schools get from just a few stickers.
What a fun way for kids to help their schools!
Oh wow thank you for explaining it so well. I’ve seen the ads (because my 11-month-old loves the jingle and claps to it), but I don’t know what to do with the stickers so I never collect them. I always shop at woolies too! Now I know better than to just leave them at the counter!
Thank you Korinna. It really is such a great program that benefits the community so much. Thank you kindly for your comment.
