Play Based Educational Curriculum

A Play Based Curriculum

We believe in the power of play and the importance of play as a learning vehicle. We provide a wide range of early learning opportunities and experiences with the child at the centre of everything that we do. We nurture early learning and development by implementing a play based emergent curriculum across all our care rooms.

Our curriculum provides a broad range of learning experiences and activities which responds to the child's emerging interests and are tailor made to meet the changing needs of each child. Our curriculum promotes learning and development under the four themes of Aistear: Well Being, Communication, Identity & Belonging, and Exploring & Thinking.

Our ethos at Happy Steps is to work in partnership with families ensuring a child centred approach nurturing children's growth, development, imagination and self esteem in the early years. We believe that children are confident and competent and active participants in their own learning. We believe that play is children's natural activity which they use to learn about and make sense of their world around them.
