Worried about a child

Peeple is a charity, whose main purpose is to support parents/carers, babies and children to learn together – by valuing and building on what families already do. Peep is the name of the programmes where practitioners and parents/carers can share information and experiences including how to make the most of the learning opportunities that surround us in everyday life and play.
Peep is based on research which shows that the home learning environment makes the biggest contribution to narrowing the gap in children’s outcomes, improving life chances and fulfilling potential.
Here are some examples of everyday positive interactions.
