Sharing Knowledge

Sharing Knowledge

Early Childhood Ireland exchanges and shares knowledge actions and projects that link to our strategic plan that strives for every child in Ireland to experience the best possible start to a happy, healthy and thriving life. A key part of this is through supporting the delivery of high-quality Early Learning and Care and School Age Childcare (ELC and SAC).  We aim to do this through our national annual awards, the sharing of research, relevant professional development for the Early Learning and Care and School Age Childcare sector.

The Practitioner Inquiry Programme

We are delighted to invite educators who work in member settings to be part of an exciting new programme which will focus on practitioners making connections between research and their normal everyday practice.
