About Us - Origins & ABC Programme

Antenatal care and education is vital for good birth outcomes. We are working with our partners the Rotunda Hospital and the HSE to provide antenatal care and education classes in local health and community centres.

Our family mentors work alongside parents from pregnancy to when the child starts school.

We visit families in their homes and give information on child development and parenting, with the aim of improving school readiness.

From September 2015, we will offer the Triple P Positive Parenting Programme to all parents of children aged 2 – 12 living in our target area.

We train and mentor early years educators to deliver best outcomes for children.

Our Strengthening Foundations of Learning approach focuses on developing the following areas of early years practice:

  • Curriculum
  • Oral Language
  • Leadership
  • Transition to School

Our Schools Programme works to improve learning outcomes for children and to equip them with life skills that will help them to achieve their full potential.

We do this by providing on-site, customised professional development and mentoring for teachers in proven play, literacy and self-regulation programmes.

Preparing for Life is a prevention and early intervention project based in north Dublin.

We work to improve children’s lives by supporting parents, early years practitioners and teachers to use proven approaches to help children achieve their full potential.
