what is the peep learning together programme?


The Learning Together Programme (LTP) aims to help parents and carers to:

  • value and extend learning opportunities in everyday life
  • improve the quality of the Home Learning Environment
  • develop secure attachment relationships with their babies and children
  • gain nationally-recognised units based on supporting their child's learning and development.

By supporting parents/carers, the programme aims to improve children’s:

  • personal, social and emotional development
  • communication and language
  • early literacy 
  • early numeracy 
  • health and physical development.

how the programme supports practitioners, parents and carers with children’s learning

Our evidence-based Learning Together Programme values and extends what parents/carers already do. Using the ORIM framework (Opportunities, Recognition, Interaction, Modelling), it helps strengthen adult-child relationships, building children’s self-esteem and emotional self-regulation. The Programme offers information and activities in 74 topics that practitioners can share with parents/carers and their children, based on the five strands of children’s development listed above -  have a look at some examples of topics.

formal recognition of parents'/ carers' learning - parent qualifications

Nationally-recongised adult learning units are embedded within the Programme. These units are based on what parents/carers already do to support their child’s development, and how they have put into practice the knowledge gained while taking part in the Programme. This builds parental capacity and ‘learner identity’ which research shows makes further progression into volunteering, further learning or work more likely.

peep antenatal programme 

Learning Together’s sister programme, the Peep Antenatal Programme (previously known as reflective parenting) supports strong parent-baby bonding and attachment relationships beginning in pregnancy.
