Naionra Curriculum

Our Naíonra opens from 9.30am to 12.30pm, Monday to Friday, for 38 weeks of the year. Naíonra Ghleann na Darach is providing the ECCE scheme. Children eligible for the scheme can attend the Naíonra for 38 weeks free of charge. We provide children with opportunity to absorb a second language in a fun an enjoyable way.

Children will be fully immersed in the Irish language and will naturally absorb Irish through play, songs, stories, games, day to day routine and activities. We have a range of learning and play equipment, that is all freely available to the children. Children are free to choose activities that they enjoy such as crafts, painting, water & sand play, construction toys, play material and Montessori material, all with their own developmental benefits.
