EasyPeasy Evaluation

A research project of the School of Education.


This project is a large scale evaluation of an early years intervention, EasyPeasy, which provides parents with regular game and activity ideas to do with their pre-school children. EasyPeasy is designed to improve early child development through increasing positive parent-child interactions and learning at home, as well as providing a supportive online community with other local parents. The evaluation is using randomised controlled trial methodology to investigate the impact of EasyPeasy on children’s language and communication, children’s self-regulation and social-emotional development and on the home environment. Alongside the impact evaluation, the project will conduct a process and implementation evaluation looking at how EasyPeasy is delivered, acceptability to those involved, perceive impacted and any barriers to successful delivery. The project is working with more than 100 school nurseries across England.


The project is funded by the following grant.

  • Easypeasy Evaluation (£350120.00 from Education Endowment Foundation)
