Peep - Learning Together Programme

Free one hour weekly groups for parents and carers and their children, from pre-birth to five years old.

Parents and carers are children’s first and most important role models. Children learn most at home during the early years. At Peep we help parents and carers to give their children a flying start in life.

Fact - 80% of the brain is developed by the age of 3.
