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.
