The Jersey Child Care Trust, the Best Start Partnership and the Childcare and Early Years’ Service are delighted that ‘REAL on the Beach’ is back!


Making it REAL (Raising Early Achievement in Literacy) is an evidence-based programme that works with practitioners to support children’s early literacy and development. The programme helps practitioners to build parents’ knowledge and confidence so that they can help their children by creating a positive early home learning environment. This has proved to have a powerful impact on children’s outcomes and on family literacy practice Read more about REAL here: Making it REAL.
