The CECDE was established in 2002 by the Department of Education and Science with the aim of developing and co-ordinating early childhood care and education. It played a vital role in the development and implementation of the national policy approach to learning and development in early childhood. In November 2008 the Centre closed when Government funding for the organisation was withdrawn.
