Early Childhood Care and Education Policy: Ireland Country Note
In Press
Optional Fields
Ireland; policy, early childhood care and education.
Special Issue
Historically early childhood care and education infrastructure and policy in Ireland has been underdeveloped compared to other OCED countries (OECD, 2004). According to the OECD (2012), access to childcare, staff training, high-quality provision and public expenditure are vitally important if all children are to benefit positively from ECCE provision. This Country Note addresses these issues briefly and discusses some key transitions in ECCE policy in Ireland.
