Missus Tattys is committed to offering the children in its care a comprehensive curriculum. We offer a range of learning opportunities to children, which are appropriate to the child’s stage of development. The service is fully committed to being guided by the principles of Siolta and the curriculum framework Aistear.

“Encouraging each child’s holistic development and learning requires the implantation of a verifiable, broad based, documented and flexible curriculum or programme”. Siolta – the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education

“Active learning, relationships, play, language, and meaningful experiences are priorities for supporting children’s early learning and development”. Aistear – The Early Childhood Curriculum Framework
