Start Strong's submission to the Minister for Finance in relation to Budget 2010. Start Strong was established in 2004 as the Irish Childcare Policy Network (ICPN), which brought together people and organisations concerned with childcare and early learning in Ireland, to influence and advocate for policy development and appropriate investment in children’s early care and education. In 2008 ICPN was awarded a grant from Atlantic Philanthropies to progress this work, and in November 2009 Start Strong will be formally launched by the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs
