Our open day for chilldren interested in enrolling in Rathcoole
Playschool for September 2014 is on Friday May 30th. at 12.30pm to
1.45pm We look forward to meeting parents/guardians and children and
to give everyone an opportunity to interact and view the Playschool
environment. We are confident that our Playschool’s emergent
curriculum inspired by the Aistear curriculum framework, achieves our
goal of enabling children to become independent, competent and
confident learners, our Aistear kids. We have completed a two year
project in collaboration with NCCA and Early Childhood Ireland
incorporating the new Aistear curriculum framework into our
Playschool setting. We are delighted to have received very positive
feedback from teachers in National schools regarding the Aistear
curriculum framework.. We are currently participating in “Siolta”the
National quality framework for early childhood education which will
further enhance our Playschool environment.
Hoping to see everyone on Friday May 30th.
Maura, Majella and Breeda.
