About Play, Chat and Learn

Play, Chat and Learn: Workshops

For parents/carers who would like to know more about supporting their child’s early learning and development at home.

They can come along to one of our workshops full of ideas and fun activities for families to enjoy together. The sessions are aimed at toddler and pre-schoolers. There will also be online workshops provided. 

Play, Chat and Learn: Drop-in sessions

These drop-in sessions are for families with preschool children with questions or concerns about their child’s speech and language development.

Community Early Practitioners will support families through advice and signposting to relevant services.

Making it REAL programme

Making it REAL is an evidence-based programme delivered by a team of Sheffield Family Hub Community Early Years Practitioners. The programme is aimed at parents/carers of children aged 3-4 years old.

It builds on parents/carers knowledge and confidence so that they can help their child with reading, writing and creating a positive home learning environment. The programme is delivered via a combined approach of home visits and fun workshops.

Through the one-to-one visits and workshops parents/carers will be given practical ideas to support play, learning and early language development in readiness for school. Workers will support and guide families with any next steps and information.
