Abstract

Using a community action research approach, the Early Learning Initiative (ELI) provides an integrated programme of educational support from early years up to third level with over 2,500 children, parents and professionals actively involved each year. An independent evaluation by the Children’s Research Centre, Trinity College, Dublin found that ELI’s cross sectorial networks were working effectively to enhance educational outcomes for children and their families. ELI had made an impact on the home learning environment with learning being perceived as enjoyable and something to be shared across the family. Children and young people were faring well in terms of educational outcomes and in their attitudes to education.
