Gaeloideachas welcomes new plan for Early Years Education, but additional support needed for Naíonraí

Gaeloideachas welcomes the publication of the reforms announced by the Department of Children to support the early learning sector, which will ensure increased investment and assist in developing the profession of early years educators.
