Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE)

Our aim of is always to ensure that every child has the opportunity to experience early education by creating a number of childcare places under the Access and Inclusion Model (AIM) that facilitates children with additional needs to access early education in their own community.  

Respond are the largest Early Childhood Care and Education provider in the country. We are committed to providing high quality and affordable early education and childcare.

Our settings create safe, nurturing and stimulating environments that reflect the needs of all children while creating co-learning opportunities between the family home and setting.

We provide over 700 childcare and school age places to families in nineteen services nationally.

Child Protection

Respond is committed to promoting the highest standards of child protection in line with “Children First: National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children” (2011). To achieve this we have developed our child protection policy “Making our Communities Safe for Children”.  This policy is being implemented within the organisation and being promoted on all of our family estates.

Copies of the policy are available in each of our Community Buildings. If you would like to read an information leaflet on our Child Protection Policy please click here. To receive a copy of the Childcare Protection Policy, you can email info@ respond.ie
