Play group opened in 2009. It is a sessional morning group that introduces children to a creche setting. It is a laidback environment with a mix of Aistear, Siolta, Montessori and child led activities. Some of the activities we like to do include:
- Some self select Montessori work
- Reading in the cosy corner
- Arts and crafts
- Sing songs and music
- Play fancy dress
- Play in the home or construction area
- Sand and water play
Our play groupies day begins at 9:15 and they meet in the garden for a play. They then go upstairs, where a typical day looks like this;
We do shelf work or an art activity, followed by some circle time and then snack time. After break we do messy play or the children pick an activity they would like to do. Our day ends with a quick tidy up, story time in the cosy corner and then one final play in the garden.
The children then get collected at 12 o’clock to go home.
