Here is the link to our report on the museum and gallery pilot programmes for under 2’s, parents and carers, which were evaluated by Liz and Sara Mair and Adam Billson( March 2012).

Engaging Under 2’s and Parents /Carers Museums and Galleries pilot

Since the report was published Manchester Museum, The Whitworth Art Gallery and Manchester Art Gallery have developed regular core programmes for under 2’s .

We currently have a facebook page : culturekids -Stuff to do for 0-5s in Manchester where our sessions are listed for parents and we can share images and comments with them.!/Culturekidsmanchester

We are hoping to deliver a follow up event to culturebaby in the spring which will be to share examples of good practice with under 2’s in museums and galleries nationally and will post when we have date and further details.
