At Acorn To Oak we believe in a fun, play based approach to learning and development in the early years.
Our carers are passionate about childcare and are experts in supporting your child’s development within a playful and fun atmosphere. Every child’s journey is unique and is recorded in a Learning Journey story book that is filled with paintings, collages, drawings and photographs of your child and their new friends.
We recognise that the preschool years of 3-5 are especially important and lay the foundations of your child’s primary education. At this stage we introduce the Montessori method of teaching. Your child is introduced to the fundamentals of reading, writing and mathematics in preparation for school, all the while in a fun, exciting and colourful way.
Our staff deliver an excellent Department of Education and Skills (DES) programme, developed by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA), called Aistear. This programme in turn is supported by a set of quality standards known as Síolta which helps to ensure the delivery of a quality early childhood care and education experience.
Daily records, learning stories and observations are recorded through our online TEACHCLOUD APP.
