Programmes

 

At Clever Clogs we plan and implement our curriculum based on Aistear which is the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) curriculum framework for all children under the age of six years old.

Clever Clogs takes part in the Classroom Dina Programme which is a preventative model delivered to our pre-school class over a 22 week period using a whole group approach.

It aims to strengthen children’s social and emotional skills through:

  • Understanding and Communicating Feelings

  • Using Effective Problem Solving Strategies

  • Managing Anger

  • Practicing Friendship and Conversational Skills

  • Behaving Appropriately in the Early Years Setting

The programme is delivered twice a week as part of the groups ‘circle time’ where the lesson is introduced, the key skills of the lesson are then reinforced through an age/stage appropriate activity as part of the ‘small group time’.

Each lesson encourages and supports valuable and fun learning opportunities for all children in the group

Clever Clogs new Access and Inclusion Model (AIM) which was introduced on the 15 June 2016 for children starting ECCE in September. AIM supports a child-centred model, involving seven levels of progressive from staff support to equipment needed for a child which is based on the needs of the child and the pre-school provider.
