This is just a taste of what is on offer. Have a look around our site and see the range of products on offer!
My Learning Journey
My Learning Journey is one of our most popular products. Educators love that the large pages can capture children’s emerging interests, photos and artwork combined with the fact that the Aistear themes and goals are listed at the front of the book allowing educators, parents and visitors see the important connections and follow the child’s progress. Combine this product with our amazing Aistear Stickers and save huge amounts of time writing and making connections!
We have a fantastic collection of plans so when a child shows an interest in a topic you can respond with a creative, child-led activity. Why not build up your own collection (resource library) of curriculum plans so you can dip into it when you need inspiration!
Music and Dance Programmes
Introduce Music & Movement into your classroom through our award-winning Music Curriculum Programmes Ceol Step into Music and Funky Feet. These programmes have tremendous benefits for children and will also give your service the competitive edge and a unique selling point.
If you are taking on new staff you must give them a contract within 8 weeks. Our contract template is especially designed for the Early Years Sector and will ensure everything is covered. We also have a job description pack. Remember every employee needs to have a job description on file to comply with regulation.
Medical & Health Forms
Emergency Medical Care Plans are an absolute ‘must’ if children with allergies or specific illnesses have joined your group. We have care plans to cover everything from nut allergies to epilepsy. If we don’t have one to cover an illness we will develop one for you!
If you have received funding under the governments Access and Inclusion Model (AIM) you will find this pack practical and helpful as it contains relevant policies, forms and a specific contract of employment for the role of a person funded through this programme.
Communication and partnership with parents is essential in a quality service. Our Newsletter writing service provides you with a professionally written newsletter monthly. The big advantage of this is that you can add all your own news too in an attractive and colourful format. A great way of keeping parents informed and being compliant!
It is important to have a comprehensive registration form for the smooth running of your service. It is also important to have a good solid agreement in place with parents so that conflict and disputes can be avoided! Leave nothing to chance by getting yourself this pack.
