Thirteen pre-school workers from four community based childcare services graduated in the Crowne Plaza recently after undertaking a pilot programme around the Incredible Years Parent Programme.
A brochure detailing the outcomes of the programmes was also launched on the night.
This is the first time this approach has been undertaken and in light of negative media coverage recently of childcare services, the four participating centres deserve great credit for getting involved.
They are Scalliwags, Holy Family/Claddagh Treasures, Scoil Beag and Right Start.
This programme has directly impacted on all attending pre-school in the four services, with best practice in promoting positive behaviour being introduced and implemented.
