Service Development Fund Report – PEEP Messy Play Prestonpans

Act Plan Study Do







We would like to develop Messy Play with Parents from the Prestonpans area at the Pennypit centre.   We have a large creche space with an out door area, which would be a good area to encourage participation in the benefits of Messy play.   We have had some taister sessions in 2013 and the feed back from parents was very positive.    We would like to promote PEEP through the Messy Play sessions and advertise the groups through local Health visitors targeting parents with Children under 3 building peer support to encourage parents who are harder to reach.   We would also like to build a bank of PEEP trained people to work locally building on relationships with harder to reach parents to encourage participation.    The project would run for 12 months with 10 week blocks of activities.   We plan to have two play/PEEP workers for the first hour and then input for an hour from myself and the family worker on building on personal development for parents and time to possibly complete the parenting qualification as part of the PEEP.
