CBeebies Grown-ups is not just for parents but also for people who teach or care for children aged 0-6, and for those who care for children with physical disabilities or special educational needs.
All of our resources are matched to our CBeebies learning areas, which reflect those found in the early years curricula of the UK; the EYFS in England and Wales, the Curriculum for Excellence in Scotland and the Foundation Stage in Northern Ireland.
We use these learning areas so that you can be sure that what children learn from CBeebies perfectly complements what they will learn at nursery or school.
There are many ways you may choose to use our site to support your day or to pass to your children's parents and carers - we'd love you to drop us a line to tell us how you've been using it. Please email your teaching suggestions to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Caroline, a Reception teacher, said:
"The children in my class are real CBeebies fans and there are plenty of ways I can tap into what the Grown-ups website offers to help support the children's learning and most importantly, make it fun!"
There are great activities across all the areas of learning that can help children reinforce concepts taught in class, such as Alphablocks, which uses phonics for literacy, The Numtums for early years maths, or Get Squiggling Letters for writing practise.
It is also really helpful to be able to point parents and carers in the right direction when explaining to them how they can help support their child's learning at home.
The Grown-ups section of the CBeebies website has plenty of clear, practical advice and fun activities that they can easily access and covers a wide range of topics and issues that are relevant to young children.
CBeebies has worked with early years educational specialists and psychologists to understand how shows and activities on CBeebies are supported by our learning areas. On our Grown-ups site you will see one or more of these areas against every piece of content.
