Early Learning Initiative

The Early Learning Initiative (ELI) at the National College of Ireland (NCI) was developed to address the problem of educational underachievement in marginalised communities. Building upon tried and tested models of early years’ intervention, it is our mission to work with communities in areas of greatest need, to provide world-class parent and child learning support programmes.

We work with families so children don't get left behind. Learn more from Leah's story:

How you can help:

Just €10 could pay for a book and toy used by a Home Visitor when visiting a family.
Just €20 could help provide a numeracy pack for use in our crèches, schools, or afterschools.

We need your financial support so we can help more kids like Leah.
