Open day at Naíscoil an Chéide as Irish language pre-school goes from strength to strength

Naíscoil an Chéide, now in its third year, continues to grow from strength to strength.

The Naíscoil has just received their first published ETI inspection report and are delighted to have achieved the highest possible outcome of ‘High Capacity’, in overall effectiveness.

The areas inspected in October 2017 included: outcomes for learners; quality of provision; leadership and management, and these were all deemed to be of a ‘very good’ standard.

The inspectors  go on to report that “both the indoor and outdoor learning environments are stimulating, well-resourced and child-centred.”

Of the Naíscoil staff the report said, “(the staff) plan together a well-balanced educational programme covering all areas of the curriculum” and “have created an effective immersion environment.”

“The dedicated team, work very well together and are committed to continuous staff development that impacts on the overall quality of the naíscoil.”

Due to expanding numbers Naíscoil an Chéide now has three members of staff trained in early years education, all having a high standard of Irish. Naíscoil an Chéide’s ethos is to provide children with a safe, secure and stimulating environment for learning – something the ETI inspectors  recognised during the inspection process and in the report: “the naíscoil’s approach to care and welfare impacts positively on learning, teaching, and outcomes”.

The Naíscoil is holding an open day on Sunday, December 10 from 12pm to 2pm, and the committee and staff would like to extend an invite to all parents and their children to come see the setting for themselves.

Application forms for funded places for September 2018 will be available on the day.
