Transforming Lives Together in 2023

Read time: 4 mins
2023 has revealed the extent of the pressing challenges facing our young children in the aftermath of the pandemic. We know the gap in school readiness has risen, and particularly for children from the most disadvantaged backgrounds, with 99% of reception teachers reporting having at least one child in their class who is unable to hold a pencil, listen and respond to simple instructions, or share with their peers.* 

At EasyPeasy, we recognise the importance of parent-child relationships in the early years and the special importance of the home environment in shaping children’s outcomes. We’re committed to transforming the landscape of early childhood development through our mission to support parents to give their children the best possible start in life. We know we can’t achieve our mission alone and that’s why we work through
local partnerships to effectively reach families across the country.

Together we’ve built our evidence base

This year, the Education Endowment Foundation published EasyPeasy’s strongest evaluation to date, showing the positive long-term impact of EasyPeasy on helping achieve a Good Level of Development. The longitudinal study was conducted in collaboration with eight local authority partners stretching across four years from 2019-2023 and with over 1,200 children and their families participating.** The results are a testament to what can be achieved through combining the power of human-centred design and scalable technology. Building on this powerful evidence base, we are proud to share our collective impact across 2023, through partnership delivery with an increasing number of local authorities covering every major region.
