The Lullaby Project is an early years book that aims to connect educators, parents and artists with the spirit of lullaby and to create their own spaces of exploration and wonder with the babies in their care.

We have also launched a new app on iPad and iPhone, providing a more immersive insight into the project through sound, image and video from the project.

Description

The Lullaby Project was a partnership project with Kids’ Own and Early Childhood Ireland, funded by an Arts Council touring grant. The project took place in three early childhood care and education centres across county Sligo in 2013 and 2014 with artist Maree Hensey and musician Martin Brunsden.

The early childhood care and education centres participating in the project were Toadstool Cottage Community Childcare Centre in Ballyrush, Little Pathways Creche & Montessori in Strandhill and Sandcastles Childcare Centre, Enniscrone.

‘With the Lullaby project, we wanted to regenerate an interest in lullabies among early childhood educators, parents and their babies. We thought of lullabies as a way of creating relaxed, peaceful spaces where adults and babies communicate and connect at an emotional, physical and deeply human level.’

– Carmel Brennan, Head of Practice at Early Childhood Ireland

‘Be flexible. the measures of success are the moments of engagement, the level of peace and relaxation, the level of wonder and connection.’
