Membership for Early Years Educators

We work with schools, families, community groups, and artists to provide children with support and activities that allow them to experience their mother tongue in new and exciting ways.

We are now partnering with Barnardos to support Early Years Educators working with multilingual families throughout Ireland.

Individual membership lasts 12 months from the day you join and it includes webinars, events, and resources on bi- and multilingualism as well as networking and training opportunities for our Early Years Educators members.
