An exciting project has come to East Sussex called ‘50 Things to do before you’re 5’, which is a bucket list of fun and educational activities for families to do across East Sussex – all low-cost or no cost! The objective being to help solve the problem of children reaching their first school experience with low literacy levels, language skills, or just a lack of life experiences (see below Related Resources for more information).

The app is FREE to download and can be found on our website or in your app store (search ‘50 Things to do’ and select East Sussex):



We also have Facebook and Instagram accounts where there will be regular updates and where families (and settings) can share pictures of what 50 Things activities they’ve been up to:




Please share this project with the families you are working with, and with your own families and friends who have children aged 0-5 in the county, by encouraging them to download the app and follow/get involved with the social media pages.
