Abstract

This chapter examines how, over the past seven years, a process of community action research has given direction, meaning, and motivation to the Early Learning Initiative (ELI) in the National College of Ireland. The author describes the ELI, a community-based initiative aimed at addressing educational disadvantage and children and young people in the Docklands of Dublin, Ireland. Operating as a partnership between several groups and institution, including parents, public health nurses, early years’ services, schools, funders, and community organizations, ELI has developed innovative programs that are improving the literacy and numeracy skills of children and young people in the Docklands. Over 4,000 children, parents, and professionals actively engage in ELI’s programs each year.
