EARLY CHILDHOOD CHAPTER

When Covid-19 hit Ireland in March 2020 and early childhood services were forced to close, Valerie Gaynor and staff at Creative Kids & Co set about adapting their outdoor space and their practice in preparation for re-opening. Situated in Assumption Primary School in Walkinstown, Dublin, Creative Kids opened up during summer 2020 to offer preschool provision with a larger than usual outdoor dimension to keep everyone safe.
