Holistic learning and development involves all areas of development and embraces a view of the whole child developing in the context of family, home and community. We understand that young children do not learn in discrete units; they make connections across their learning with these connections changing and developing with new experiences. The Aistear Curriculum Framework uses themes such as Well-being, Identity and Belonging, Communicating and Exploring and Thinking to present children’s early learning and development. It offers a way of moving from thinking about learning and development in discrete developmental domains to thinking about these in a more holistic and integrated way. Consequently, Stepping Stones approach to learning and development supports children’s learning and development in a way which is natural and enjoyable for young children.
