[PEEP] Peers Early Education Partnership
This is a one hour session where parents can share and support each other with welcome time songs, talk time, story book sharing and the borrowing of toys and story sacks. PEEP offers you lots of fun ideas to support your child’s learning at home. Parents can also gain a qualification, this is available at:
Orton Children's Centre

what we do
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 practitioners and families share information and ideas from the Peep Learning Together Programme about how to make the most of the learning opportunities that surround us in everyday life and play. Research shows that this - known as the home learning environment - makes the biggest contribution to narrowing the gap in children's outcomes. So, as well as working directly with families in Oxfordshire, we train practitioners around the UK and beyond, to share the messages as widely as possible. All our work is underpinned by the Peep principles and the ORIM framework.
We train and mentor over 900 practitioners every year. The Peep Learning Together Programme is now used by early years professionals from around the UK (and internationally) to help parents create the best start for their children by listening, talking, playing, singing and sharing books and stories together. Practitioners come from a range of backgrounds including family work, teaching, childcare and health. You can read more about the variety of ways that people are using the Peep Programme.
programme delivery with families
We are also a delivery organisation, based in Oxford, where we work directly with local families. Some of this work is commissioned by our partners in the area, and some is funded to develop innovative ways of supporting parents and children to learn together. In January 2015 we opened our first Peep Pre-school in the Leys area of the city. We have an office in Edinburgh, where we are supported by the Scottish Government to grow our work in Scotland and to develop parent qualifications and progression.
We are involved in research through the evaluation of our programmes and projects, and we work to influence policy both locally and nationally.
