The Smith Family created the pilot program over concerns children who were already struggling would fall further behind while learning from home due to COVID-19.

For three days a week over a six-month period (with only a small break for Christmas and New Year) selected students across the country from Years 4, 5, 7 and 8 would meet online with a trained teacher who gave them tailored support with Maths and English.
