Here at Bright Beginnings we implement the Aistear Curriculum. Aistear is the early childhood curriculum framework for all children from birth to six years. The word Aistear is the Irish word for journey and was chosen because early childhood marks the beginning of children’s lifelong learning journeys.
AISTEAR operates on the theme of well-being, exploring & thinking, communication & identity & belonging for the child and is all about the child being happy, healthy and confident.
The Aistear Curriculum has now been implemented into the Primary Schools within the area. You can learn more about Aistear on their WEBSITE.
