to meet the changing needs of each child

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, Identitiy & Belonging, and Exploring & Thinking.

We promote a policy of social inclusion and believe that every child is equal.

We value each child as an individual with individual needs and will promote freedom of expression and independence at all times.
