Optional Fields
This article presents findings from a mixed methods research project which sought to include the voices of young children in an ongoing evaluation of a government funded community-based prevention and early intervention programme in Ireland. The main objective of the intervention programme is to measurably improve the lives of children (pre-birth to six years) and their families through universal and targeted services in an urban community which experiences high levels of socio-economic deprivation. A key aspect of the programme is an Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) strategy which involves the delivery of a suite of Early Years quality improvement measures to seven ECEC centres (both crèche and preschool rooms) in the catchment area.
