We operate according to Siolta`s National Quality Standards and the Aistear`s
Curriculum Framework.
Síolta is designed to define, assess and support the improvement of quality across
all aspects of practice in early childhood care and education settings where children
aged birth to six years are present.
Aistear is the early childhood curriculum framework for children from birth to six
years in Ireland. It gives information to help plan for and provide enjoyable and
challenging learning experiences so that all children can grow and develop as
competent and confident learners. Because early childhood marks the beginning of
children’s lifelong learning journeys, this framework called Aistear, the Irish word for
Aistear uses four themes to outline children’s learning and development. These
themes connect and overlap with each other:

  • Well-being
  • Identity and Belonging
  • Communicating
  • Exploring and Thinking


Our three service’s practice the national childhood curriculum.  Aistear is based on
four themes that all work together to provide structure and support in early learning
which enables all children to become successful learners, confident individuals,
responsible citizens and effective contributors to society.  Both centres share staff
and unified values in delivery and practice. Close working and collaboration means
each child is offered high quality experiences that are mirrored in both settings.

Outdoor Learning

Learning outdoors is an important area within the curriculum. At both bases, the staff
and children use the outdoor area as an extension to their rooms. By providing daily
opportunities for outdoor play and learning, the children have the freedom to
experience energetic play without the restraints of the indoor environment. By
playing outdoors the children have the opportunity to be challenged and involved in
risk-taking activities, large physical play and exercise, planting and growing activities,
den making, and various other activities. This allows children the opportunity to begin
to appreciate the world around them through nature
