I’m delighted to share two pieces of exciting news with you. Since EasyPeasy was founded, our mission has been to help all parents give their children the best start in life. That’s why today we’re opening up EasyPeasy’s platform to all parents across the UK.
Over the last 3 years, we’ve been able to provide free access to EasyPeasy to over 30,000 families with support from the Department for Education, charitable foundations, local authorities, multi-academy trusts, and schools and nurseries. Our incredible community of ‘Pod Leader’ practitioners have helped us engage with parents in new and exciting ways and we will continue to work with them as partners to achieve our shared social mission to narrow the opportunity gap.
This new way of accessing EasyPeasy means that families who are not part of a school, nursery or children’s centre, from anywhere in the country, can also join our community and learn through play with us. Parents and carers can now enter their details at www.easypeasyapp.com to receive an access link directly to their phone.
I’m doubly excited that I can announce our opening up at the same time as celebrating our new collaboration with LEGO. We’re delighted that LEGO shares our mission and wants to support us to reach more families. So far the partnership has produced new learning games, which our families have loved.
We’re excited that LEGO will also explore ways of supporting our future development so that families can play and learn more with EasyPeasy. Secretary of State for Education, Damian Hinds joined us at one of the first settings to work with both EasyPeasy and LEGO to celebrate our partnership and also launch the Department for Education’s own campaign on home learning and the early years.

This is such an exciting time for EasyPeasy and I want to thank you all for joining us on the journey.
We think we have the best community of parents, practitioners and supporters, and we want to keep working in partnership with you to give all children the best possible start in life!
