Information on the National Pre-school Education Initiative for Children from Minority Groups

This initiative began in 2011. Clare County Childcare Committee had the lead role in the delivery of this initiative on behalf of 32 city and county childcare committees.

The initiative included:


• The FETAC Level 5 module on Diversity and Equality in Childcare being delivered nationwide.
• A mentoring programme for the staff participating in the training programme.
• A DVD for training was produced as part of this initiative.

Diversity and Equality resources were purchased for the services involved in the initiative.


Five childcare services in Clare have participated in this programme.
