Target Population: children aged birth
to 5 years and their parents/carers.
Program Adaptability: PeepLTP was designed for flexible delivery, based on the needs of the parents and children. Practitioners can select session plans to tailor to the needs of their families. Stories and songs make up every session and should be selected from the community to be culturally appropriate to the client.
Staffing: the provider encourages cross training of existing staff in your setting.
Services should consider the cost of backfill in determining the cost of accessing this program.
Training Requirements: the training consists of two 1-day sessions in which practitioners:
Learn to deliver the PeepLTP to parents and children
Create their own PeepLTP courses using different program content and resources
Develop skills and attitudes to work with parents
Supervision / Coaching: a Community of Practice structure is being developed through the Brotherhood of St Laurence in
partnership with Playgroup Victoria which will provide support and continued professional
development for practitioners.
Implementation Model: the implementation model is flexible, as the materials can be used in one-on-one sessions and in group sessions. Two practitioners are recommended for groups larger than 6 parent-child pairs.
The contents of the session plans are designed to build on what parents are already doing to support their children's learning.
Tools and systems: all materials are accessible from a password protected online portal. Access to this is for practitioners who have completed the full 2 days of training.
Australian Experience: The Brotherhood of St Laurence is the licenced training body for PeepLTP
in Australia. BSL has been running an intensive PeepLTP in 3 settings since early 2017, and have trained
several hundreds of practitioners in Victoria, NSW and WA.
implementation knowledge: most research has been based on programs lasting 10 weeks with groups meeting once a week.
Resources from large practitioner training and conference events are summarised and uploaded in the peeple.org.uk Members Only area.
Short case studies about different ways of using Peep including in early years settings and schools are available on the general peeple.org.uk website.
