The Early Childhood Ireland Research and Practice seminar is an opportunity for researchers and practitioner educators to share their research towards developing evidence-based thinking and practice within the early childhood sector in Ireland. We particularly urge supervisors, tutors and mentors to encourage their mentees to submit abstracts and to contribute to the professional conversation.
The Awards Night is a party to celebrate the wonderful work/learning of Early Childhood Professionals. We will present the Early Childhood Ireland Innovation and Learning Story Awards on the night. Also special plaques will be awarded to our Síolta-validated member settings.

Saturday 1st April: Annual Conference
Research has clearly established that the key indicator of quality in early childhood education and care is the educator. In Early Childhood Ireland we are acutely aware of the responsibilities of the role and the need to feel supported, respected and valued. Consequently, this conference is about drawing attention to the enormous contribution you make to children, families and communities.
In this keynote address, Laura Henry will discuss the unique needs of the child and how educators can support children with their holistic developmental needs. Laura will also reflect on the importance of educators knowing and owning their own personal reflections and thoughts on Early Years and how this is key in how they work with children. More on Laura Henry and her keynote.
