Partnerships

Early Childhood Ireland works to develop partnerships at home and abroad through a range of initiatives and projects. We do this collaboratively, bringing research evidence and knowledge (when research findings integrate with existing knowledge, beliefs, and practices) to bear to improve early years settings through reflective practice and professional dialogue. Early Childhood Ireland is the only selected partner in the Republic of Ireland of the highly influential Reggio Emilia Approach® from Italy. Early Childhood Ireland also leads on and partners in European Commission Erasmus +.
