Name of the Service: Loughlinstown Early Years’ service
Address/Location: Loughlinstown Drive, Loughlinstown, Co. Dublin.
The project seeks to improve child developmental outcomes for children aged from birth to 5 years and to maximise the capacity of their families/carers to meet children’s needs by offering an Early Intervention Service with targeted support for individual children and a bundle of integrated family support services for their families. Specific attention is given to those families where child protection or welfare concerns exist, working with the most vulnerable and disadvantaged families specifically focussing on parenting skills and child/parent relationships in order to reduce subsequent difficulties for children.
We do this by providing a range of Hardiker level and 2 and 3 interventions in response to the individual assessed needs of children and their families referred to Barnardos.
Services include Infant and Toddler and Preschool programmes for children based on the High Scope and Tus Maith curriculum, Individual work with children, Individual home based parenting work (Partnership with Parents), Parent/Child work, Practical Family Support, advice information and advocacy, and group work with parents including a Parents Breakfast.
Loughlinstown is a busy centre with 21 children and their parents/carers attending our Early Years and Preschool services on a daily basis and additional families attending the family support services.
We work to provide a response which involves interagency collaboration to maximise outcomes for families.
Referrals are accepted from Tusla, the HSE, schools, and other agencies and individuals as appropriate, including other Barnardos services and parents/carers themselves.
All referrals will be responded to and following Barnardos assessment, services will be offered in line with presenting needs, criteria and service capacity.
As Programme Assistant you will provide a safe, child centred environment to a child in the Early Years’ service.
