The CSER conducted original research into the design of a subsidised supply model of childcare to promote equity of access to early childhood education and care services for all children inIrelandon behalf of the NWCI. The research included a review of international childcare policies to inform the development of an appropriate model in the current Irish childcare context and involved consultative sessions with on-the-ground childcare providers and voluntary and community organisations to ensure the proposed model is reflective of and adaptable to current childcare needs in Ireland. The research also involved extensive collaboration and consultation with the various NCOs, government departments, the Equality Authority and the Combat Poverty Agency.
