Start Strong welcomes the opportunity to meet members of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health and Children to discuss issues arising from the Indecon/Donegal CCC report, Supporting Working Families – Releasing a Brake on Economic Growth. Our presentation will discuss a number of issues arising from the report, on the quality and affordability of early childhood care and education.

Start Strong is a coalition of more than 50 organisations seeking to advance children’s early care and education in Ireland. Start Strong works from a children’s rights perspective. Asserting the rights of young children means putting children’s interests first in early years policies, especially through prioritising the quality of children’s experiences, and through focusing on outcomes for children.
