The curriculum that we use in Stepping Stones, Aistear, is getting updated. The researchers are keen to hear from parents. It would be great if you could spend 5 mins filling out a questionnaire and share it with any parents you think might would be interested. Thanks in advance for your time. You can access it at the link below.

After we observed our children pretending to make some cakes with sand or playdough we have noticed a huge interest in baking so we decided to make some real buns! 🙂🧁

They really enjoyed this activity in group!! 👏👏

Talking Buddies are running a Read Aloud Challenge during the month of February for parents of children in Preschool.

They want to encourage parents to get into the habit of reading aloud to their child every day as they know the benefits it has on speech and language development. The challenge is to read a book everyday to their child, write the name of the book on the challenge sheet and return to Talking Buddies where parents will be in with a chance of winning €50 worth of books.

Please contact Talking Buddies at katie.walsh1@hse.ie for more information. Katie will then print the sheets and post to you directly for distribution.

In response to healthy eating we focused in Italian gastronomy.The children were little chefs and they prepared their own homemade pizza. We discussed the steps to follow to get a delicious pizza. They were so excited making It which everyone got in charge of something such as rolling the dough, putting on the sauce etc.. well done to everyone!!! 🙂🍕🍕

We also celebrated Daniel's Birthday and he was so kind bringing some yummy cakes! Thank you! and Happy Birthday!! 🙂👏

Have a lovely weekend to everyone!!
