Start Strong: "If I Had A Magic Wand - Young Children's Visions and Ideas for Early Care and Education Services"
This publication published by the Irish coalition Start Strong presents children's own visions and ideas of what their early care and education should be like. Young children are experts on their own lives. If we are to develop policies that are in children's interests, then we must listen carefully to what children themselves have to say.
More than 600 children took part in the consultation process that led to the publication of this book. The process was part of a wider consultation that Start Strong carried out in its Children 2020 project on the future o children's early care and education in Ireland.
