The Early Years sector is in crisis.

Parents are paying too much for childcare. Workers are paid too little to make ends meet. Providers are struggling to break even. Everyone is getting a raw deal.

We need a strong movement to come together to demand change.

This is why SIPTU has launched the ‘Big Start’ campaign.

Professional workers deserve professional pay.

For children and parents we want quality and affordable services.

By bringing together workers, parents and childcare providers we can ensure that government makes the necessary investment to make this a reality.

A responsible government that values every child would recognise every Early Years professional. 

Join us in our campaign and make a 'Big Start' for everybody.
