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).
