What is Early Words Together at Two?

Early Words Together at Two is an adaptation of our Early Words Together programme, designed specifically for parents of two-year-olds.


If you have received training for Early Words Together at Two, you will be able to access all the resources you need to complement your sessions here.

Early Words Together at Two toolkit

All practitioners in the project should have received a printed version of this at training. Please contact us if you need another copy.

Parent take-away sheets

At the end of each session, practitioners will provide parents with take-away sheets with key messages for promoting their child’s learning and simple activities to try at home.

Parent sign-in sheet

Please fill in this log at each parent session so we can record how often parents are attending sessions. You can submit the log to us via email or post at the end of the cycle of sessions.

Case study templates

As part of the project, practitioners are asked to complete a case study that captures one of two things:

  1. Your learning as a practitioner
  2. Your observations of a family's journey during the project

You only need to complete one case study template but if you want to do more, please do.

Please ask parents to complete the National Literacy Trust permission form if you would include photos of volunteers, parents and children in your case study.

Parent surveys

Practitioners are asked to help parents complete a survey at the end of the last session. This will help to see if there have been any changes for the parent or child since taking part in Early Words Together at Two.
