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 2020 – 2021 Early Years Network meetings will take place on:

  • Monday 19th October 2020, 9.30am – 11.00am (likely to be a virtual network);
  • Tuesday 9th February 2021, 9.30am – 11.00am;
  • Wednesday 16th June 2021, 9.30am – 11.00am.
