Nursery Curriculum


The Nursery Curriculum is based on guidelines issued by the Department of Education (Curricular Guidance for Preschool Education). This can be accessed here - 

The Nursery Curriculum utilises and builds upon the learning that has taken place in the home and it’s immediate environment.

We believe that all children should have the opportunity to follow a curriculum that allows them to progress at their own pace.

The six areas of the Nursery Curriculum are:

  • Early Mathematical Experiences
  • Language Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development and Movement
  • The Arts
  • The World Around Us

Nursery staff plan, observe and review regularly in order to provide the best learning opportunities for the children, and to ensure they each develop to their fullest potential.
