It is our philosophy that by using a blended, child centred emergent Curriculum, staff are able to embrace all of the key components critical to learning in a child’s impressionable first five years, while fostering their own unique-ness. We work off the principles of Aistear and we believe in play-based learning.
As children express interest in various things, our key carers will act as ‘Scaffolders’ and further support the child in this learning. Developing our language skills, problem solving , creativity and social skills. Each child will have their own ‘learning journal’ where we will document their own unique learning path, these journals will be loaded with write ups on your child, photographs of their day, artwork and creative work.
We are going to be very focused on the layout and careful planning of each room in the setting. We believe that if we provide children with a warm, bright room with clearly laid out areas of interest that children will thrive in exploring their environment and also, we believe in encouraging as much outdoor activity as we can possibly can.
