Learning

​At Tots, our experienced staff, across our creches in Kildare, develop curriculums specially designed to encourage children to explore the world around them, while meeting the individual needs of the children. We ensure that our curriculums are child friendly and most importantly child led.

 

We design our curriculums on a monthly basis and draw up weekly plans. Each activity is evaluated and observations on child development are rigorously documented.

All our facilities are enriched with visual learning, which encourages your child to learn through the environment around them. We offer a wide variety of real life, hands on experiences to your child to support their inquisitive minds. These experiences are compiled in a learning journal for your child's classroom that you will see proudly displayed on our walls.

Keeping in touch with you

Communication; it's at the heart of what we do. We have a refined communications process that consists of written"Daily Contact" and "Monthly Contact" sheets, detailed below. These ensure that parents are well informed and up to date on their child's progress and welfare.

We think it's important to have frequent chats about the itsy bitsy things , as our paths weave across the day too. And if you'd like to have a chat about anything else, we're always happy to talk; just give us a call.

Daily contact sheet

At Tots we ensure that parents feel completely involved in your child's learning and education. We provide an "end of day sheet" for your child which contains all the information about your child's day and learning.

Monthly contact sheet

Every month you will receive a letter which explains all the information regarding your child's curriculum and learning progress. This includes words of songs and poems so that parents can reinforce the child's learning at home.
