The Children's Centres offer a range of PEEP (Peers Early Education Partnership) courses. Currently centres run Baby PEEP and Toddler PEEP offering support for parents and children to learn together. The different elements of a Peep group provide opportunities to share the key ideas with parents and carers. Peep sessions include:
songs and rhymes
activities with the children
a talking time for adults
story and book-sharing time
ideas for parents/carers to try at home.
Adults do not need to read or write during a Peep group. Everyone is invited (but not pressured!) to join in during singing and talk time.

- Colchester : Discovery Centre, Army Welfare Community Centre, St Stephens Church, Beehive Childrens Centre, Ark Methodist Church
