Published on: 10/05/2018

We are inviting all early years practitioners to take part in an excellent opportunity on Tuesday 29 May 2018 in Belfast from 6.30pm to 8.00pm.  

The research seeks to understand the current preschool challenges and procedures on a typical day. In particular, the research seeks to understand the procedures for teaching children, between the ages of two to four, how to wash their hands, and to create new resources in this area.

All participants will receive £60 as a token of appreciation for taking part.

To be eligible to attend you must meet the following criteria:

  • Work with children aged 2-4 years in a preschool setting (day cares, playgroups, parent and toddler groups, Sure Start, childminders)
  • Only one person from each setting may attend
  • Participate actively in the focus group

Notes: A mix of early year practitioners is required, so please note your place of work is required to ensure a mix of different areas are included.

If you are interested, please send the following information in an email to Karen Martin at

  • Your name
  • Contact Number
  • Contact Email Address
  • Place of Work
  • Job Title
  • Age range of children you work with

Please note spaces are limited and you must meet the relevant criteria to apply.
