Organised by the National Childhood Network (NCN), Childhood Services Week takes place from 23 to 28 May.

The Week is dedicated to raising the visibility of, and celebrating the early childhood and school age sector across Ireland. This year, the theme is Hearing the voice of the child through the arts.

As part of Childhood Services Week 2022, NCN are encouraging service providers, staff and childminders to celebrate a ‘Festival of the Arts’ during this dedicated week in your setting; appropriate to your children’s ages and stages of development.

You can share your activities with NCN by emailing to help showcase the amazing work delivered by services across Ireland.
