Aistear, the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework for children from birth to six years, celebrates early childhood as a time of being, and of enjoying and learning from experiences as they unfold. This early learning also lays important foundations for later learning. Because early childhood marks the beginning of children’s lifelong learning journeys, this framework is called Aistear, the Irish word for journey.
Our children love the ‘Aistear’ room here in Scoil Oilibhéir. This month the theme is The Restaurant and the children have been busy making menus, painting, taking part in role-play, working in the ‘kitchen’ and generally enjoying learning through play.
