50 Things To Do Before You're Five

St Edmund`s NSCC is a nursery school and children’s centre in Bradford, committed to providing an outstanding learning environment for young children under the age of 5.

We developed and launched the ’50 Things to do Before You’re Five’ initiative which supports the holistic development of children, with an additional focus on children’s speech, language and communication skills. Each one of the 50 things is a low cost/no cost, fun activity for the child to take part in with his or her carer, ranging from Hocus Pocus Potions, Sharing Books to Woodland Wandering and many more exciting ideas! 

Have a look at our app on the Play Store and App Store.
