At the Annual Conference of OMEP (Irl) on Saturday, November 6th, Minister for Children Roderic O’Gorman announced the appointment of Professor Nóirín Hayes as the first Champion and Advocate for Early Childhood Education and Care in Ireland. The appointment is for three years and entails a number of engagements and actions to raise the profile of early childhood education and care in the lives of children and their families. It was a great honour for Professor Hayes to accept the appointment as she has a very long standing relationship with OMEP, both nationally and internationally for most of her professional life.
