Early Childhood in Ireland - Evidence and Perspectives
Edited by Jacqueline Fallon
From the introduction:
"The Centre for Early Childhood Development and Education (CECDE) is pleased to publish this discussion paper, Early Childhood in Ireland - Evidence and Perspectives.
This document is the last of the four pillars of research which the CECDE has put in place to support the development of the National Quality Framework in Early Childhood Education (NQF). It encapsulates the perspective from which the child’s interests are being incorporated into the NQF. It is also hoped that it will provide a useful resource for the ECCE sector and a basis for fruitful debate and discussion. It articulates well with the National Children’s Strategy, Our Children, Their Lives (DHC, 2000) and Towards a Framework for Early Learning (NCCA, 2004). The development of a strong consensus position among key agencies with responsibility for young children will benefit the future co-ordination and cohesiveness of ECCE in Ireland."
