Parents & Carers


How a family-based approach to enriching life experiences in the under 5s improves health, happiness, and attainment.

Who should attend?

  • Local authorities
  • Early years professionals
  • Community groups linked to early years


Why you should attend…

Impoverished life experiences in the early years can put a child at a disadvantage against their peers. Research shows that many children never recover from this early disadvantage, which impacts on their attainment, confidence, aspirations, and life chances. 

This webinar will demonstrate how Local Authorities are using 50 Things to Do Before You’re 5 to enrich lives and improve the future of young children.

  • Discover how to engage parents and foster whole family approaches to health and wellbeing
  • Find out how to combat social disadvantage through this initiative
  • Help different cultures engage with community and environment
  • Provide early years education to encourage children to be happy and healthy, and learn while having fun
  • Support public health initiatives such as, combating obesity, diabetes, coronary and respiratory diseases
  • Prepare under-5s for future learning and school readiness

Led by the team at St Edmund's Nursery and Children’s Centre in Bradford and rolled out in conjunction with Local Authorities across the UK, 50 Things To Do is an exciting initiative that helps parents and carers connect with their children through meaningful activities designed to have a positive impact on learning and health, so that their children can thrive through a range of low or no cost fun local activities.

Making a positive impact on learning and health, while improving early language and literacy, motor skills and resilience.

The webinar is being organised and hosted by our technology partner Frog Education.
