The Inner city port area of Dublin has suffered a decline in traditional job opportunities resulting in economic hardship for local communities. Adaptation to new opportunities in knowledge P83based industries is slow due to low levels of educational attainment.

The Early Learning Initiative in Dublin’s port area focuses on improving educational attainment by working collaboratively with community based service providers and family support agencies to create an inclusive vision of intervention and support. Interventions start from birth and continue until the end of formal education providing a continuum of support for children and families with an emphasis on parental involvement in their children’s education. This paper gives a brief overview of the initiative and documents the development of the initiative from planning stages through to implementation.
