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. However, the organisation recommends that targeted support should be provided to naíonraí due to the additional costs and challenges associated with providing their service through the medium of Irish.
Gaeloideachas warmly welcomes the decision by the Minister of Education to approve the establishment of a new model of school in Dundalk, Co Louth to provide post-primary Irish-medium education for students in the region.
