What we do
Our playgroup operates a play based curriculum which link the four themes set down by Aister(The National Curriculum Framework).
1. Well being
3. Exploring & Thinking
4. Identity & Belonging
Children learn while playing and having fun, this is our aim for the children in our care. Children are unique and have their own individual ways of learning, through observation we will hone in and provide a wide range of activities which will allow your child to progress in all areas of development.
At Little Turtles Playgroup our aim is to work in partnership with parents, guardians and families of each child. We link in with relevant agencies(Early Childhood Ireland) which encourage and promote the well being and holistic developmental needs of all the children in our community playgroup.
