National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Care and Education

Síolta, the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Care and Education, was launched in May 2006. It sets out the principles of ensuring a quality experience for early childhood education and is designed to be applied across the many different settings and types of childcare provision.  

The National Quality Framework was published, following a detailed consultative process, by the Centre for Early Childhood Development and Education (www.cecde.ie).
