Peep Learning

Together Programme

PeepLTP empowers parents to make the most of everyday learning opportunities including singing, sharing books and stories, and talking about a wide range of ideas, thoughts and feelings. 

Research tells us that the biggest influences on children’s outcomes are the quality of the relationship with their parents and carers, and what they do with their family, from birth – known as the home learning environment

PeepLTP supports parents to understand more about how children learn – and to do more of the things at home that make a difference to children’s outcomes.  Intended for parents/carers of children aged birth to school-age, it can be used to communicate concepts and ideas with parents about how to enhance the home learning environment and can be used with parents in a variety of settings including playgroup, one on one, and groups

Peep Learning Together Programme is a parenting programme that helps:

  • parents and carers to improve their children’s life chances, by making the most of everyday learning opportunities – listening, talking, playing, singing and sharing books and stories together
  • babies and children to become confident communicators and learners through play
  • practitioners to develop their work with parents/carers and young children
  • parents and carers to recognise and build on their own learning potential and achievements
  • communities to narrow the attainment gap, which appears even before children reach school.
