On Friday 18th October the Flying Start website was launched by Professor Emer Smyth (ESRI) at Ardee library.
Flying Start is a website for parents which brings together information on the different stages or transitions that happen in the first five years of your child’s life. The website offers practical advice and tips for parents and their children as they begin preschool and primary school.The website provides information and support for the three transition stages:
1. The transition to parenthood
2. the transition to Early Learning and Care
