Showcasing the work of Childhood Services through the Voice of the Child

As Childhood Services Week 22 approaches (23-28th May), NCN calls on the entire sector to get ready to show case the valuable work carried out in services across Ireland to enhance the lives of children. Whether you provide a preschool, creche, afterschool or childminding service, this dedicated week creates an opportunity for all services to highlight and showcase how the Voice of the Child is heard through the Arts. Providing opportunities for children to draw, paint, manipulate dough or clay, or other open-ended materials, dress up, or enjoy rhymes or stories, sing or dance are all of value.

Have a look at the report from Childhood Services Week 2021- Arts at the Heart, as well as our slide show and see if there are photographs included of children in your service. It hasn’t been possible to highlight all the images shared with us in 2021 but we hope the report and the slideshow will give you a feel for some of the wonderful experiences children of all ages have within a diversity of settings.
