Early Years in the City

Discover the early years provision available throughout the city,

We will host a wide variety of businesses and service providers on the day, who will showcase their activities, lessons and support available to you. This is the perfect opportunity to ask questions to the people behind the businesses and find out more about what is available to support you and your children in their early years, before they embark on formal education. You will encounter paid for lessons, that can be signed up to on a termly or pay as you go basis, and also the many free options available throughout the city that will give you wider access to unique learning and play provision, whilst easing your financial pressures. 

You will also be able to experience taster sessions throughout the day, including early years drama workshops, sensory play sessions, craft activities, rhyme time and much more!

Upon entry to the event you will also receive a 10% off voucher for use in our café, Alfreds and the opportunity to enter a prize drawer for some fantastic prizes.

If you are an early years activity provider or support service for children, parents and carers and wish to have a stall at this event, please fill in our expression of interest form and email it to by Friday 22 July. We will review applications and aim to let you know within 2 weeks.

*Taster sessions will be on the day sign up, on a first-come, first-served basis.
