DCYA Launch Supports for Parents

May 1, 2020

Let’s Play Ireland is a government-led initiative aimed at promoting play for all children living in Ireland during the COVID-19 emergency. Find these supports here.

Playing is central to children’s physical, mental, social and emotional health and wellbeing. Children learn through play while developing resilience, flexibility and understanding of their world. Play in families enriches childhood. All children and young people have a right to play.

Play has never been more important, but during this time please follow the HSE advice on physical distancing and wash your hands. For more information go tohse.ie/coronavirus.

Gaeloideachas has inquired with the Department about making these supports and services available through the medium of Irish. We will continue contact with the Department until all resources and supports are provided in Irish as well as English, and will update you with these documents as soon as they are made available.
