"The Early Childhood Curriculum Framework celebrates early childhood as a time of being, and of enjoying and learning from experiences as they unfold."

NCCA 2009

The Aistear Curriculum Framework promotes early year learning opportunities through play. This can mean a host of educational and fun-filled activities structured around your child's day. Children learn best when they feel happy and secure.

The Learning Tree is very lucky to be able to utilise several learning and play environments: indoor, outdoor, green space, soft-play, gym hall and the farm.

The Aistear Curriculum follows a child's journey from birth up to six years of age. It sets out useful tips and practical advice for early year service, junior and senior infants in national schools and families, on how each child's learning can be best enabled through everyday activity and routine.
