PEEP Annual Report, April 1999-March 2000.
Peers Early Education Partnership, Oxford (England).
The goal of England's Peers Early Education Partnership (PEEP) is to support early communication and literacy skills and to support parents as their children's first educators through both home- and group-based programs. The program is currently offered to all children under 5 years of age and their families in a disadvantaged area of Oxford. This annual report details the partnership's major accomplishments for April 1999 through March 2000, a period spanning PEEP's fourth and fifth years. The major accomplishments of PEEP are described as: (1) the day-to-day development and running of the project; (2) PEEP's contribution to the formation of Rose Hill-Littlemore Sure Start; (3) an agreement to fund the PEEP research studies; (4) securing a 2-year grant to fund a National Development Officer for PEEP; and (5) planning for Phase 2 of the project. Also presented in the report are difficulties encountered, adjustments made to the project, and policy issues involved. The impact of the program made by its contributions to national and government conferences and through various visitors to the program is presented. The report also contains the partnership's financial statement, and outlines plans for Phase 2 of the project (2000-2005). The report concludes that the vision for PEEP as a "generation" project to continue over a further 25 years may be an important objective to pursue. Three appendices include information on the program's trustees and management team, provide additional information about PEEP, and list PEEP's publications and contacts. (KB)
