    The Association of Childhood Professionals (ACP) is a representative body for childhood professionals in Ireland. Having started in Cork, it was launched nationally by Minister Frances Fitzgerald in June 2013.

    Its aims are to:

    • Be the collective identity and represent the voice of childhood professionals
    • Promote and engage active membership
    • Advocate and seek support for the initial training and continuing professional development of childhood professionals
    • Advocate and campaign for recognition of childhood professionals including their professional status and equitable pay and work conditions
    • Raise awareness of the value and contribution made by the childhood professional to the lives of children, families and society as a whole

    Branches of the ACP have been opening in counties throughout the country. At this event, the ACP will be offering information on:

    • The benefits of ACP membership and the importance of growing that membership as a representative voice for all childhood professionals
    • Discuss the possibility of setting up a County Wicklow Branch of the ACP; the steps involved and the supports available to do this
