Welcome to the Museum of London’s Early Years toolkit.
Thanks to generous support from Arts Council England
over several years, we have been able to develop a reputation for excellence and innovation in early years learning in museums. We've developed an outstanding offer for our youngest visitors, from birth to five years old.
As you explore the toolkit you will find a wealth of content. Watch our captivating film showing children’s learning in action at the Museum of London Docklands and discover a range of inspiring case studies from across the UK. You'll also find our top tips for working with young children, articles by early years specialists and a sample of our practical resources to download.
So whether you're thinking of developing early years activities for the first time, or looking to enhance existing provision, you'll find something to meet your needs.
The toolkit is organised into three sections to enable you to select the content that is most relevant to you.
We are delighted to be recognised by Kids in Museums
for how this toolkit can support the wider museum sector as a whole. We would also like to thank the Early Years Network
members for their contributions and support. To find out more about the network or to sign up, please visit our blog
