Quality supports are offered to early year’s services and practitioners in a number of ways including accessing both accredited and local training which supports professional development and support visits by our development team.
All training provided is linked to the National Quality Frameworks of both Síolta and Aistear and to the requirements for pre-school inspections under Regulation 5 of the Pre-school Regulations. These frameworks guide practitioners in their practice ensuring quality learning experiences are provided for the early year’s child.
Better Start provides a Quality Development Service to Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) providers. It achieves this by using Síolta, The National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education and AistearThe National Early Years Curriculum Framework.
