At Eden Childcare Kilkenny our wish for each child is that they are happy, confident and sociable. To attain this we support our children in reaching developmental milestones and gain basic life skills by working under the Early Year framework of Aistear and Síolta.
Staff accomplish this by communicating with children at their level. Staff actively listen and work in partnership with parents in building caring warm trusting relationships with the children in our care.
The fundamentals we work off are ‘respect for each child and their culture’. Eden Childcare Kilkenny recognises that play is children’s work and is shaped by planned and unplanned experiences, which are age appropriate. We identify and expand on the children’s emergent interests and develop learning in a fun, interactive and imaginative way. We share these learning experiences with the other children and encourage friendships, and building on peer relationships.
