All places in the Study are now filled, but to find out more about the Study, please check back to this page for updates. Many thanks to everyone in local authorities and nursery classes around England who generously gave their time to discuss the study, and to everyone who is getting involved.
The Learning Together Study is funded by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and it is led by the Oxford-based charity Peeple. It will train practitioners from schools and acadamies to deliver the Peep Learning Together Programme to groups of children and their parents, and will evaluate its effects. The evaluation will be carried out by Queen’s University Belfast. The aim is to find out how successful the Learning Together Programme is in improving the learning environment at home, and whether this improves children’s vocabulary, early literacy skills and social skills. This evidence will add to the existing positive evidence about the Programme which has already been established by the University of Oxford.
The Peep Learning Together Programme is an early intervention which supports parents to understand more about how children learn - and to do more of the things at home which make a difference to children’s outcomes, like singing, sharing books and stories and talking about a wide range of ideas, thoughts and feelings. The Programme is delivered by trained practitioners to parents and children together. The Programme will start with a single home visit followed by 20 group-based sessions. You can deliver these at a time that is mutually convenient for your families.
