About the programme

Early Words Together at Two helps to improve the home learning environments of families of two-year-olds. It is designed for settings, including private and school nurseries and children's centres, who serve low-income families.  

Between January 2017 and March 2018, the programme is supported by a grant from the Department for Education.  

Early Words Together at Two:

  • Promotes the importance of the home learning environment
  • Reduces the attainment gap by supporting vulnerable children aged 2 to achieve improved outcomes 
  • Partners with parents to engage them in their child’s learning
  • Provides early years practitioners with opportunities and training to engage parents and develop networks


We have developed a series of resources for practitioners delivering Early Words Together at Two.  From January 2017 to March 2018, these resources are only available to practitioners participating in the Department for Education pilot project.
