    Pippa and Pop is part of a learning experience that could only come from Cambridge

    It's shaped by unique insights from our extensive research and expertise, all to enable teachers to do what they do best - teach - and learners to reach their full potential.


    Supporting early years development 

    Thanks to early years research we know that play is crucial to children’s learning and brain development. We also know that Early Literacy and Learning to Learn competencies are two well documented predictors of success in school and beyond. Pippa and Pop combines these insights into an effective approach based on play and the Cambridge Life Competencies Framework.

    The importance of learning through play

    Play is crucial to children’s brain development and its benefits to life competencies and language learning are well documented by early years research. Pippa and Pop has a strong focus on play, helping teachers to scaffold classroom activities where learners develop communication, creativity, self-regulation and social-emotional skills through fun and play.

    Foundations for early literacy

    ‘Early literacy’ describes the development of skills and cognitive tools in young children, which prepare them to learn to read and write. Pippa and Pop draws on the latest research by fostering a joy in stories, songs and rhymes, enabling them to learn to read more easily.
