Parents & Carers

What's in the app?

The 50 Things To Do Before You’re Five mobile app gives parents and carers 50 low or no-cost experiences to support their child's social, emotional, physical and early language development.

The app contains all the information, guidance and supporting resources to allow parents to build a memory bank of photos and videos, as a collection of their child's special moments.

Step-by-step instructions

Each activity has a tailored set of instructions to maximise the experience. Each activity includes the following information...

  • How to do it
  • What you will need
  • When? Where? Why?
  • Key words
  • Top Tips
  • Stories to share
  • Resources
  • Local links

Additionally, for children with special educational needs there is guidance to ensure they receive maximum benefits from the activity.
