What is a PEEP group? How can it help both me and my child?
Parents are their children’s first and most important educators.
Research indicates that having a positive home learning environment in the early years is the single most influential factor in children’s outcomes throughout childhood, all the way to the age of 18.
Today, we held a short information session about PEEP groups. Read on and watch the videos below for more information.

Put simply, it’s small informal group sessions, with parents, children and teachers/educators having fun and working together to ensure our children and parents achieve their potential. It’s all about teamwork and achievement.

My daughter is too young to go to school nursery yet but I’ll be applying for places in January. This school will be my first choice.
What age can she start the PEEP group? Is it for all children?
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch!
Currently, PEEP group is for nursery children and families who are registered and already started with the nursery/school. Though younger siblings are welcome to come along also.
There are some other PEEP groups happening across the city during term time and the Summer holidays also, but not linked to the school. If you have a look on Facebook – Peep Aberdeen City, you’ll get more info there.
Hope that helps and answers your query!
