Abstract

The core function of the Centre for Early Childhood Development and Education (CECDE) is to produce a National Framework for Quality (NFQ) for Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) in Ireland. This comprises three distinct elements of defining, assessing and supporting quality provision in Ireland. To this end, a number of research projects have been conducted as pillars to support the NFQ, including: >Talking About Quality, a national consultation with stakeholders (CECDE, 2004); >Perspectives on Childhood reviews current research on child development and learning (CECDE, Forthcoming A); >Insights on Quality: A National Review of Quality in ECCE in Ireland - Policy, Practice and Research 1990-2004 (CECDE, 2005a); >Making Connections: A Review of International Policies, Practices and Research Relating to Quality in Early Childhood Care and Education (CECDE, 2005b).
