Today marks the start of Baby Week Leeds, which runs from the 12th to the 16th of September 2016. Based on the Semana do Bebe (the week of the baby) model in Brazil, this event is an Early Years initiative aiming to raise awareness of the critical growth stages of a baby’s life.
There are many events for professionals, parents, and babies taking place throughout the city during the week. The timetable can be found here and includes interactive activities such as sensory storytelling time and baby massage sessions at locations including Chapeltown Children’s centre and Kirkstall Children’s Centre.
Following the closing ceremony at Leeds Civic Hall on Friday, there will be a pram push around Millennium Square at 3pm. Fingers crossed for some good Yorkshire weather!
