Early Years

During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we have taken our Early Years programme online, visit the Early Years | PLAY Live page for more details.

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.

Explore more about our work with children and early years educators using the links below.
