education case studies - settings, schools and adult learning
The Peep Learning Together Programme can be used within pre-schools, school or nursery classes and childcare settings. Sometimes this is for new families, when a Transition Peep course is offered to families, but the programme is also used during regular sessions.
In Fife, practitioners have been Peep-trained in all their nursery settings, so that Peep sessions can be offered to nursery children and parents - follow this link to watch their 5 minute video film about Peep nursery staff and families. It gives a flavour of the way that the Peep practitioners value and build on what parents are already doing at home, so they can support the young children's learning together.
Using the Programme in these ways provides a range of activities and opportunities for discussion, which encourage adults’ involvement in their children’s learning. Research shows that when parents are welcomed into schools and pre-schools, it benefits children, parents and teachers. The Peep programme, with its information and activities for professionals and parents/carers, can support teachers to engage with parents in their setting, and help enhance what families are already doing at home.
