The 50 Things project is about getting parents and carers involved in a range of activities with their children, that will make an impact on life-long learning.
Each of the 50 Things have been carefully developed by education experts and early years practitioners in consultation with parents. We’ve made sure that children with special educational needs are considered and that each of the 50 Things means something across our culturally diverse community.

Created by the team at St Edmund’s Nursery School, Bradford, 50 Things was launched at the Houses of Parliament in 2018 and is currently being developed by an increasing number of Local Authorities; and interest is growing all the time.
Frog Education are the technology partner – we create the technology that makes 50 Things a success. We worked closely with the team at St Edmunds Nursery School to create the identity and all supporting digital and printed assets.
