The Mentoring Programme has been developed to tie in closely with the ABC Early Numeracy Project.
While the emphasis is on numeracy, it is envisaged that the Mentoring Support Programme will impact on all areas of supporting children’s learning and development and be reflected in all areas of practice.
The programme is in line with Aistear the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework and uses the Aistear Síolta practice guide, and the ITERS and ECERS quality audit tool. The programme includes CPD workshops, a community of practice and on-site mentoring with pre and post numeracy week support visits for all settings.
