PEEP Annual Report, April 2000-March 2001.
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 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 2000 through March 2001, a period spanning PEEP's sixth year. The major accomplishments of PEEP are: (1) establishment of PEEP Link, which has greatly increased family contacts; (2) set up of PEEP Learning, Ltd.; (3) publication of the "Learning Together" series; and (4) publication of "PEEP Voices." Difficulties related to managing the rate of development and ensuing work pressure, securing funding to match the rate of development, and problems with premises are also discussed. Additional sections address PEEP's collaboration with Rose Hill-Littlemore Sure Start, human resources, research, dissemination and replication, and training. The report also contains the partnership's financial statement, and outlines plans for Phase 2 of the project (2000-2005). Three appendices include information on the program's trustees and management team, provide additional information about PEEP, and list PEEP's publications and contacts. (EV)
