Some of our parents joined us outside for the first session of Parents Early Education (PEEP) programme. We all had fun learning about each other through our “Being Me” topic and singing some songs and rhymes. Next week, we will be discussing routines.

What is PeeP ?
PEEP (Parents Early Education and Learning) is a national early programme which aims to support all parents and carers with children from birth to 5yrs. The programme supports parents in encouraging their child’s development and learning through everyday fun activities in a group or at home. As practitioners we really value parent/carers participation as they are the most influential person in their person in their child’s life.
What a PEEP session might look like:
- A PEEP practitioner would facilitate the session with a group of parents/carers and their young children.
- The session has a structure, we always start with the hello song and finish with the goodbye song.
- We share songs, rhymes, books and stories.
- Ideas for simple activities to do at home that promote learning will be shared; mostly everyday experiences to promote early learning.
- We share play ideas
Time for talking together on a topic ( for example daily routines or early writing)
As parents and carers you are the most important educator. Through singing, stories, rhyme time and books. You can learn more about play activities which support your child’s learning. Sessions are run by group leaders trained in the principles of PEEP.

We are closed to all children on Friday, 28th May & Monday 31st May 2021. All children will return Tuesday, 1st June 2021.
Our children have been involved in our Virtual Nature School programme and have been encouraged to find different ways where they can “look through.” This led to going on a river walk journey whereby the children were able to look through trees, bushes and the fencing on the bridge. The children were able to give descriptive accounts of what they could see. The children could see the water and they noticed it was “still.” We carried on our walk until we came to the bridge. We stood on the bridge and we looked through the fencing at the water. A child explained, “it’s running very fast.” We closed our eyes and listened. We could hear the water and the birds. The children were able to further their learning of looking through by using binoculars and looking glasses. The children commented how they could see houses and windows, as they walked back to the nursery.

Anne would like to share the story of the Hungry Caterpillar with you, as part of World Book week.
Did you know your child can learn the following through the story?
Early numeracy – colours, counting foods and sorting and categorising foods.
Science – Life cycle of a butterfly.
Early literacy – Days of the week, book concepts.
Health and Well-being – Healthy eating
The list is not exhaustive and there is so much more your child can learn from just one story.
We hope you enjoy listening and learning together.
