City and County Childcare Committees (CCCs)

City and County Childcare Committees, or CCC’s for short, are a Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth funded support for parents and childcare providers. CCC’s can offer assistance with finding a suitable pre-school for your child, give advice and information about various schemes and programmes on offer. CCC’s also provide training for both parents and childcare workers.

Resources for Home Play and Learning

On this page you will find useful information on learning and play you can do with your child at home!

1. Sharing Stories with your Child

Sharing books with your toddler has many benefits. It helps children to develop listening and attention skills and hear lots of words. This helps children to understand the meaning of words and, eventually, to say these words themselves! You can download some useful help sheets from the links below.

2. Sensory Training

Sensory Processing is the ability of the brain to take in, sort out and process information from the world around us. Children may find sensory processing difficult.

The link below shows some tips on everyday things you might find useful to help your child.

3. Communication

4. Play at home
