Each week about 80 Benalla families with 120 children sing, enjoy rhymes, read stories and have fun with activities that teach skills that will resonate throughout the childrens’ lives.
The PEEP program is designed for children from birth to school age. PEEP responds to research findings that young children who are given lots of opportunities and support to explore, play, problem solve, read, sing and socialise in a group environment will be better prepared for life and learning.
Each PEEP session has a special ‘talk time’ when parents explore topics related to child development and parenting. The program also links families into local services and groups, as well as the wider community.
Benalla Health has established a strong partnership with the Tomorrow Today Foundation to assist in the delivery of the PEEP program.
PEEP age-based sessions run for approximately an hour and a half each week during school terms.
Seven programs now run at the Tomorrow:Today PEEP Centre in Cecily Court. Registration is essential for all Cecily Court sessions as places are limited. Phone 5762 1211 for more information.
