Start Strong welcomes the opportunity to make a submission to the Government on the review of funding schemes for early care and education. Start Strong is a coalition of organisations and individuals seeking to advance high quality early care and education for young children in Ireland.

Our recommendations in this submission draw from research evidence on the impact of policies on outcomes for children, and from a consultation Start Strong carried out with supporter organisations. Later in the year, we will publish more detailed recommendations, following completion of a research project on ensuring quality in a mixed market system.
