Getting Ready to Learn

16th Nov 2023

The Getting Ready to Learn project seeks to support pre-school education providers with DE-funded places to encourage and develop parental involvement in children's early learning. It is focused on improving outcomes for children in pre-school by engaging and empowering parents to help them create and sustain positive home learning environments.

 As parents, you are your child’s first and most important educator. Playing, reading and talking to your child will greatly increase your child’s language skills and how well they do at school. The earlier we begin these activities with our children the better the results and the longer they will last.

Our Nursery School has been a committed part of this initiative for many years and we incorporate lots of themes and ideas into our weekly planning. The Getting Ready to Learn website is full of exciting, fun, practical activities to support and consolidate your child's learning... have a good look and sign up!
