Early Years Network

The Leeds Early Years Network began in January 2013 and the first meeting brought together representatives from arts and cultural organisations in the city. The network now aims to map Early Years arts provision in the city and works together to promote a joined-up offer for young children and their families.

The 2016 – 2017 Early Years Network meetings will take place on:

  • Thursday 6th October 2016, 9.30am – 11.00am, Leeds City Academy
  • Wednesday 22nd February 2017, 9.30am – 11.00am, Abbey House Museum
  • Tuesday 20th June 2016, 9.30am – 11.00am, (venue tbc)


If you are interested in becoming a member of the network, or would like further information, please contact Jane Zanzottera, Arts Manager on tel: 0113 3782854 or email: jane.zanzottera@leeds.gov.uk
