Description:
The remit of this paper is to explore the role of early childhood care and education from an anti-poverty perspective through considering the child outcome ‘child poverty’ and the potential benefits of early childhood services. It examines the national and international research literature on challenges and responses and identifies some recommendations for the Irish context. The paper begins by reviewing levels of child poverty in Ireland and contextualises this within a rights framework. It identifies the early years as crucial to children’s well-being and overall development and considers the role of early education from an anti-poverty perspective. Following a review of current research on this topic, the paper concludes with a series of recommendations.
