The Children’s Research Network for Ireland and Northern Ireland in conjunction with members of its Early Childhood Research Group is currently working with Bríd McGrath to compile an online searchable database of research in Early Childhood Education and Care in Ireland, funded by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs.

The Centre for Early Childhood Development and Education published a bibliography from 1990-2006 and we are now publishing an up to date resource up to 2017 that can be continuously updated.
In order to make the database as complete and usable as possible, we are asking for your help in sourcing all relevant material. We therefore ask that you contact Dr. Bríd McGrath, Adjunct Assistant Professor, School of Social Work & Social Policy, Trinity College Dublin, on with details of research you have completed on early childhood (age 0-6), including afterschool care.
