A wide range of literature and research shows that the early years of a child’s life are not only a key time for general development and well-being, but also when children are making sense of gender. Our 2019 pilot evaluation, ‘We can all be who we want to be’ showed potential to challenge gendered assumptions related to activities and objects from a young age.
From January 2022 until October 2022, Lifting Limits worked with three Early Years settings in the London Borough of Camden. Having previously worked with 3-11 year-olds in primary schools, this was a pilot project to explore opportunities for partnership in the Early Years context.
We are now rolling out our Early Years programme more widely. If you represent a setting interested in joining the programme please get in touch. We are also keen to hear from funders who might be interested in contributing to the cost of the programme.
In the meantime, please do read about how we work with primary schools through our other programmes:
