About Sheffield Branch

The Sheffield branch of Early Education has been going strong since 2002 and has a large membership and a very committed committee. We have members coming to meetings from Rotherham, Leeds, Huddersfield, Derbyshire and further a-field. We are a lively, energetic group with a passion for making sure that what we do for our young children and their families is the best it can be.

We plan a yearly calendar of events, often with a linking theme. Meetings will respond to current events, thinking, change in early childhood as well as being a great opportunity to share good practice.  We have up to 6 meetings a year usually twilights but some on a Saturday morning.
