IMPACT and the Association of Childhood Professionals (ACP) will host two information meetings this week for Early Years professionals and providers in Kerry. According to IMPACT organiser Úna Faulkner the early childhood care and education sector is growing massively. However, she says that the valued work that is carried out by those working in the sector is not reflected in their terms and conditions. IMPACT believes that an increase in investment by the government is necessary to ensure the sustainability of the sector. The first meeting will take place at the Gleneagle Hotel at 7pm tonight (Monday, April 4th). There will be another meeting in Listowel at the same time in the Listowel Arms Hotel tomorrow (Tuesday, April 5th).
