‘Strengthening Early Childhood Education and Care in Ireland’

Minister O’Gorman welcomes the launch of  the publication by the OECD of its Country Policy Review of Ireland entitled Strengthening Early Childhood Education and Care in Ireland: Review on Sector Quality.

The review makes a number of recommendations on Early Learning and Care (ELC) in Ireland in the areas of governance and funding, workforce development, and quality assurance and improvement.

This review is part of the OECD’s wider ‘Quality Beyond Regulations’ project, which has aimed to support OECD member countries to consider policies that can effectively enhance process quality in early learning and care.
