About Bright Horizons Pre-school Curriculum

Bright Horizons is very confident that our World at Their Fingertips programme mirrors the core principles and standards outlined in Siolta, the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education developed by CECDE. Our programme for learning is also supported by Aistear, the National Irish Curriculum for children. Our comprehensive planning and observations of children's development are focused on Aistear's themes of well bein, exploring and thinking, communicating, and identity and belonging.

The pre-school learning environment is primarily based on the The Creative Curriculum for Pre-School, used in many high-quality early education settings internationally. At the core of The Creative Curriculum for Pre-School are well planned learning centres that allow for child choice and self-directed play, small groups and supportive teaching that prepares children for academic excellence. The development of language, mathematical reasoning and scientific thought is emphasised throughout all the centres. Changes to the learning environment, activities and projects reflect emerging interests and individual goals. Learning centres offer guided experiences that emcompass all the skills and understandings necessary for optimum development and success in school.
