Early Childhood Ireland's

Learning Hub

Welcome to Early Childhood Ireland’s Learning Hub.

The Learning Hub is Early Childhood Ireland’s eLearning platform, which aims to empower and support our members and their educators to not only help meet regulatory requirements but also to build professional knowledge and skills among their staff. This online facility is an ideal tool to help train new staff as part of their induction process.

We’ve run the numbers and found out that the value of completing the full range of training is over €850 per person. However, Early Childhood Ireland members and their staff can avail of most of these courses free of charge on our Learning Hub. Some courses have practical components that incur fees, which will be flagged in advance of booking. Still, we believe our Learning Hub offers significant savings for our members, as well as convenience for educators.

Proudly supported by Skillnet Ireland, Early Childhood Ireland’s Learning Hub is simple to use and allows members to easily sign up their employees for courses, track their progress and keep records of certification upon successful completion of courses.
