Being a parent is the most important job in the world!


Every child needs a chance to be all that they can be. Experiences in the early years have a lasting impact on children’s learning, health and development. As a parent, you are the biggest influence on your child’s life and future.

Parenting is wonderful, but it is also challenging! No one can do it alone. There is plenty of information out there, and much of it can be confusing or contradictory!

Here you can find high-quality information on positive parenting, based on the latest research and evidence. Read about the ages and stages  of child development, accessing local services , or  parenting programmes and events in your area. is a partnership between:

  • The Limerick Children and Young People’s Services Committee (CYPSC);
  • ABC Start Right Limerick: a prevention and early intervention programme for children 0-6 and their families in Limerick City Centre and Northside.

We hope to support you in your parenting journey!
