The Parent Child Home Programme (PCHP), which has just begun its fifth year of Home Visiting, is one of the Early Learning Initiative (ELI) at the National College of Ireland’s suite of programmes to address educational disadvantage in the Docklands.

Originating in the United States, PCHP fosters positive educational verbal interactions, between the parent and the child, which is a critical component of healthy and successful development. With over forty years of research demonstrating the effectiveness of PCHP, its principle aim is to ensure that children who go through the two years of the programme have all the skills needed to be successful when they reach school.
