Access and Inclusion Model (AIM)


For Parents

Are you the parent, guardian or carer of a child  who is eligible for and registered on the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Programme in an ECCE pre-school room? Does your child need additional support at pre-school?  If so, you can find out more about the supports available to you and the pre-school on   

The Access and Inclusion Model (AIM) places the child at the centre of its programme and recognises the important role you, as the parent, guardian or carer, have in supporting your child.
