A Start Strong conference in December 2014 saw the launch of our  report 'Childcare: Business or Profession? .

The report found that much greater levels of direct public investment are needed to ensure high quality early year care and education for all children. It also compared the Irish market for ‘childcare’ to other countries with market provision in a section written by Professors Helen Penn and Eva Lloyd from the International Centre for the Study of the Mixed Economy of Childcare, at the University of East London.
