Aistear: the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework

img aistearAistear: the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework is the new exciting programme developed by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) at www.ncca.ie/earlylearning in 2009. It is the new curriculum framework for children from birth to six years in Ireland. Since Sept. 2010 we have begun to introduce it in the infant classes at Firies N.S. 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. Aistear describes the types of learning that are important for children in their early years, and offers ideas and suggestions for how this learning might be nurtured. The Framework also provides guidelines on aspects of early childhood practice and is being used in the range of early childhood settings in Ireland including primary schools.
