PCHP National Conference
Beth Fagan and Brigina Crowe from the ELI Team travelled to New York to present a paper at the Annual Parent Child Home Programme (PCHP) National Conference.
The presentation was titled 'The establishment of a Parent Child Home Programme in a new country: From Massachusetts to Dublin'.
Brigina Crowe started by giving an outline of the Early Learning Initiative to the US audience to place the programme in context. Beth Fagan who coordinates the programme in Dublin, followed on by explaining the process she followed in bringing this US model to Ireland, how community buy-in was secured, along with the changes made in order to ensure a cultural fit.
