The Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone TD is inviting all early years professionals to complete a short survey consultation regarding their views as Early Years professionals. Responses to this survey will be used to set the agenda for the National Collaborative Forum for the Early Years Care and Education Sector, which will be known as the Early Years Forum. It will also be used in the consideration of policy and investment options.
Responses are anonymous and are invited from all early years professionals. This includes professionals working in early years services, service managers and owners, CCCs, advocacy organisations and all others working in the early years sector.
The survey will be available until 12pm on Thursday, 15th September 2016 on the Department of Children and Youth Affairs website (see link below) so that the responses can be analysed in time for the first meeting of the Early Years Forum on the 28th September 2016. The results will be published on the DCYA website.
