About The Parent Plus Early Years Programme (PPEYP) 

There is agreement across practice and policy that children are shaped by their early childhood experiences and that this is a crucial time to provide support to parents to help develop connected responsive relationships with their children. 

The focus of the PPEYP is to support parents and carers to increase their skills in positively engaging with their children, tuning in to their child’s needs, and responding effectively. The PPEY is suitable for parents of children aged 1 to 6 years, including young children with additional needs and has a strong evidence base showing a positive impact for families who attend the programmes in terms of improved behaviour and a reduction in parents’ stress levels, with an overall increase in their feelings of satisfaction as parents.
