Aistear, the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework

 

  

Aisear (2009) is the curriculum framework for all children in Ireland from birth to six years. It describes the types of learning that are important for children at this stage in their lives.  Aistear is a guide for planning exciting, engaging and fun learning experiences and activities for children in daycare and sessional services, in infant classes in primary schools and in childminding settings. It also offers lots of practical ideas to parents for how they can help their children learn through everyday activities and routines. 

The framework describes children’s learning and development using four themes:

 

 Communicating               Exploring and Thinking            Identity and Belonging                  Wellbeing
