Síolta & Aistear Learning Network
A key objective of ELI's work with early learning providers is to promote Síolta standards in preschools and implement Aistear in participating services.
Síolta is the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education. Since January 2010, the Early Learning Initiative has been providing mentoring and training for nine Early Years Education Services in the Docklands area to support them in implementing Síolta Standards in their practice.
ELI integrates all work on these standards with Aistear: The Early Childhood Curriculum Framework. A key goal of the CPD programmes is to support the full implementation of Aistear in these settings, as a fundamental tool in the planning of learning experiences and assessment for learning.
