Mellowes year one ECCE (3 years to 4 years)

Mellowes Year 1 ECCE Childcare Room

In this room the two year ECCE cycle begins and starts your child on the educational journey that will help them get ready for their primary education. ECCE year1 is run by a qualified and experienced teacher. The children work with specialised learning equipment which is graded in difficulty, self-correction and designed for success.

In our class room children work at their own pace and master basic skills at their own level of ability and as such develop a love of learning.

A wide variety of material is available to your child with a curriculum that includes the following:

Practical Life 

Care of self, our belongings and the environment.

Sensory Materials 

Interesting exercises for learning through sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell.

Mathematics Materials

Step by step use of rods, beads, spindles and cubes that can be used to learn how to count.

Language Materials 

Developing a child’s skill through the use of letters, alphabet, books, stories and circle time.

Culture Subjects

Developing an understanding of geography, history, nature, science, art and music through materials and activities.

Music and Dance 

An introduction to instruments, the various forms of dance and music.

Nature and Garden 

A hands on approach to planting and caring for flowers, fruit and vegetables in the children’s garden. Children are also introduced to easy ways to recycle and enjoy projects that care for our environment.

Aistear and Siolta 

This is the national framework used when planning all our activities. The curriculum will allow children to explore their imagination, develop their language and communication skills, develop self control and think independently.
