Clonmult/Dungourney Preschool is committed to developing a curriculum that creates a child centred, play based environment, which empowers young children to actively pursue their own learning. The frame work we follow is: Aistear the early childhood curriculum framework for all children from birth to six years in Ireland.

Aistear is designed to support parents, early childhood practitioners and teachers in planning for and providing enriching, challenging and enjoyable learning opportunities for children. The aim of Aistear is to help every child to grow and develop as a competent and confident learner. Ultimately, according to Aistear, early childhood care and education must support a child’s sense of: well-being, communication, identity and belonging, exploring and thinking.

We offer each child two free pre-school years in our service.
