We have launched a new app called ’50 things to do before you’re five’, which is free to download and packed full of fun, free or low-cost activities for your under-fives.

Those first five years can be exhausting, challenging, joyful, life changing, and everything in between! They are so vital in your child’s development – they make them who they are. 

The 50 activities on the list are all little things, many of which you would have done before. However there are some that you may not have thought of, that your child will love - like learning some sign language.

Learn about the local nature


Looking for inspiration to get out and enjoy the East Sussex countryside as the warm sunshine breaks the winter’s chill?

If so, you’re in luck.

This April residents are being offered a unique opportunity to learn more about the history and work of the Sussex Wildlife Trust and have a whistle-stop tour of the sites it manages.

Make music and new friends this summer


It’s never too early to plan summer activities for the kids, especially as we all know how quickly the warmer months come around.

If you have a musically minded child who already plays an instrument, whether they’re a beginner or have experience – East Sussex Music's summer school might be just the thing for them.
