Early Years

At the Whitworth, children take the lead. Our award-winning early years programmes are full of rich, sensory and hands-on activities, all of which are focused on early child communication and development.

Inspired by both our collection and by artists’ (and children’s) capacity for curiosity and imagination, the Whitworth is a social space that encourages cooperation, creativity and connectivity.
