0-2 Years Programme

About the Programme

The Area Based Childhood 0-2 Years Programme is the newest initiative within the Early Learning Initiative. Our vision is to provide an integrated programme of intervention and support for children, their parents and families from pre-birth to two years of age. The programme's main focus is a home visiting service to offer intervention and support for children, their parents and families. The 0-2 Years Programme aims to improve children's overall development through the empowerment of parents. The programme is designed to focus on nutrition, health care, and overall child development.

The Role of the 0-2 Years Home Visitor

On a weekly basis, for up to an hour, families will be visited in their homes by our trained Home Visitors. As the child becomes older this may move to once a month.  The Home Visitors work with the family to strengthen the parents’ skills and build self-esteem, to enable them to believe in their own capabilities and parenting skills.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This programme is free to all families within the Dublin Docklands and East Inner City.
