PEEP (Parents Early Education Partnership) is a fun-filled group which aims to support parents and carers in their role as children’s first and most important educators. It offers ideas and activities to support children’s learning and development in everyday situations.
Groups are for parents/carers and their children.
PEEP group sessions generally include the following core activities:
- an age-related focus
- songs and rhymes
- a story time
- activities with the children
- a talking time for adults (to share experiences and ideas)
- book-sharing and the opportunity to borrow books and play packs (or information about where and how to do so)
- ideas and scrap materials for families to take home to make things
Adults do not need to read or write during a PEEP group. They need not even join in during talking time or singing until they feel comfortable doing so. Each new group will agree its own ground rules, for everyone’s comfort and protection.
Our PEEP groups will be:
- run by Miss Liddle, our Early Years Officer
- held on school grounds
- run for one hour, once a week, for 6 weeks
- for up to 6 families
Standard PEEP groups are open to all families within an area, with children aged 2 years old. The programme will cover a common set of developmental for this age group.
