What is Peep?

Peep was set up in 1995 to support parents to enhance their babies' and children's learning and development and improve their life chances.  The evidence-based Learning Together programme supports all parents to create the best start for their children by making the most of everyday learning opportunities at home – listening, talking, playing, singing and sharing stories and books.  

For more detailed information about PEEP and Learning Together please see  www.peep.org.uk

What are Peep groups?

Groups are for parents/carers and their children. Peep group sessions generally include the following core activities:

  • a focus from the Learning Together folder (eg 'Babies making choices' or 'Babies on the move')
  • songs and rhymes
  • a story time
    Mum playing with baby
  • 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 sometimes scrap materials for families to take home to make things.
