    Abstract

    The Centre for early Childhood Development and Education (CECDE) was launched in 2002 by the Minister for Education and Science and is jointly managed by the Dublin Institute of Technology and St. Patrick’s College. The remit of the CECDE is to develop, co-ordinate and enhance early childhood care and education in Ireland. The 3 objectives of the CECDE are to: > To develop a quality framework for early childhood education, > To develop targeted interventions on a pilot basis for children who are educationally disadvantaged and children with special needs; and > To prepare the groundwork for the establishment of an Early Childhood Education Agency as envisaged by the White Paper. (CECDE, 2001)
