The importance of Early Education

Early education for children is hugely important. Children learn life skills at a young age. If your child is in a well run early education centre with the right childcare education curricula, correct ratios, a safe environment and caring qualified staff, the learning experiences for your child will be huge. Some of things children learn with us are:

  • Problem solving skills
  • Listening skills
  • Sharing skills
  • The importance of friendship
  • Communication skills
  • Respect for the environment
  • Respect for myself and others
  • The importance of my culture and community
  • How to make mistakes and learn from them
  • Empathy for others
  • How to discover and explore
  • How to create my own theories about how things work
  • Learn about the world I live in
  • How to play with other children
  • Respect choice and peoples rights

These are life learning skills that will enhance your child’s learning, increase their self confidence and self esteem and encourage them to achieve and be the best that they can be. These are enhanced further by our policies on

  • Caring and professional staff
  • Settling-in process
  • Key worker system
  • Daily feedback
  • Open door policy
  • Curriculum Planning

Childcare Quality Frameworks:

Here, in Child’s Play, as well as complying with the Childcare Regulations, we also operate two quality frameworks:

Siolta: The National Quality Framework. Learn more about Siolta here.

Aistear: The Early Childhood Curriculum Framework. Learn more about Aistear here.

We find both of these childcare frameworks invaluable and a great resource for learning more about the children and how they learn in different environments.
