CitationThe Centre for Social and Educational Research. (2000). An Evaluation of Barnardos Early Years Services.https://knowledge.barnardos.ie/handle/20.500.13085/779
AbstractBarnardos is currently conducting a review of all its work, (i.e. Childcare, Finance,
Administration, Governance, Management, Human Resources and Communications) and has
commissioned The Centre for Social and Educational Research, DIT to undertake the
evaluation of its Early Years Services. It is envisaged that this evaluation will feed into the
broader review process. The main anticipated outcome of the organisational review is that it
will identify any gaps in the current work of Barnardos and make recommendations to bring
work into line with standards of best practice.
This evaluation focuses on the current structure of the Early Years Services, examining areas
such as curriculum, resources, assessment process, profile of service users, staff qualifications
and training needs. It also takes account of any other issues which emerged in the course of the
evaluation which impact on the effectiveness of the early years services.
