Using '50 Things' to Engage Parents in Their Children's Learning


This webinar was led by Andrea Layzell, the National Early Years Project Lead for Bradford Birth to 19, the training and development arm of St Edmund's Nursery School and Children's Centre. She has worked in Early Years for over 30 years, including 20 years working for local authorities and as a consultant supporting practitioners.

50 Things to Do Before You're Five is a free resource available on an app, a website and print resources across West Yorkshire and other areas of the British Isles. In this session, we considered:

  • How 50 Things can be a tool to engage with more of the parents of children in your setting
  • Ways in which 50 Things can improve the home learning environment of the children in your setting
  • How to use 50 Things to enhance practitioner confidence in their interactions with parents of their key children
