A big thank you to Community Foundation for Calderdale


Posted on July 17th, by Rebeka in YYM News. No Comments

Yorkshire Youth and Music has recently received a grant from Community Foundation for Calderdale which will enable us to put together a learning and resource pack for each centre taking part in our Early Years project currently running in 12 Early Years settings throughout Calderdale.

We are working with Early Years staff at Calderdale Council to develop music and singing activities in Early Years Foundation (EYFS) settings and schools across the borough.  Sites are getting weekly visits from a musician with skills and experience of working with 3-5 year olds.  The work is specifically designed to develop children’s Communication Language and Literacy Development (CLLD) and Personal Social and Education Development (PSED).

Our Early Years project is funded by Youth Music’s open programme via partnership work with Calderdale Council Early Years Department. The project has also kindly received funds from Community Foundation for Calderdale and the Yorkshire and Clydesdale Bank Foundation.
