Parents & Carers

Get involved

For any local authority, 50 Things to do Before You’re 5 can have enormous educational, social and health benefits.

Local Authorities that adopt 50 Things to do Before You’re 5 make a high profile commitment to a range of support initiatives, including...

  • Supporting families and children to develop positive health and wellbeing habits that will last a lifetime
  • Helping prepare children for future learning
  • Supporting families and children with health and wellbeing in the early years
  • Championing public health benefits, such as helping to combat obesity, diabetes, coronary and respiratory diseases
  • Engaging parents and fostering whole family approaches to learning health and wellbeing
  • Promotes social mobility and community cohesion
  • Enables Local Authorities to meet the new statutory requirements to support home learning at a time of Covid pandemic

How can we get involved?

When you become part of 50 Things to do Before You’re 5, you are joining a national network of Local Authorities. We will give you the tools, the training and the framework to make the project live and breathe in your area. The magic comes when you make the project relevant to your community.
