Cluster Workshops - Aistear Siolta Practice Guide

The Galway City and County Childcare Committee are setting up Cluster Groups in different locations in Galway City and County.


The small size of the Cluster Groups will enable more in-depth discussion on particular areas of practice identified by the services.  It is an opportunity for services to work through the practice guide and become comfortable and confident with the Aistear Siolta curriculum and its implementation.


Each Cluster will start at the Curriculum Foundations, establishing a shared understanding of how children learn and what constitutes a quality early years learning environment. Referring to the different pillars of practice, each Cluster will be able to share and develop practical ideas and resources relevant to their individual service.


It is expected that the group will come together every 3 to 4 months, this will be dependent on the training and support needs of each Cluster group.
