Early Childhood

Rising to the Challenge

As a mother of three children Mary is acutely aware of the value of a positive childhood experience. Early childhood in particular is of critical importance to parents, policymakers and our wider society.

Mary is happy to do all she can to support three proposals from Early Childhood Ireland which will impact positively on the lives of young children and families in Ireland.

Mary fully supports the ambition of these proposals to

“stabilise the early years sector for providers and staff, support the delivery of a cost-effective system for parents and most importantly, sustain the delivery of quality experiences to babies and young children.”
