Early Start

 

We, in North Pres, are very fortunate to be one of 6 schools in Cork which has an Early Start unit.

Early Start is a pre-school initiative which caters for children aged between 3 years 2 months and 4 years 7 months. It is a bright, spacious, well equipped and happy environment where children enjoy their first experience of school.

 Learning takes place through play activities which include equipment like construction blocks, jigsaws, beads, sand, water, “home corner”, art and crafts, library, music and movement, physical activities and much more!

Parents are encouraged to be actively involved both inside and outside the unit through courses and trips.

Early Start is a great advantage to help children make the transition from home to Junior Infants.

World Book Day 2022

There were lots of fun events in the school this week to celebrate World Book Day 2022. The children in Senior Infants made their own books, including text and illustrations! The 2nd and 6th class children went on a trip to Waterstones to spend their World Book Day vouchers. To finish the week off on a high, we had a dress up day on Friday, where children could dress as their favourite fictional character. It was a fantastic finish to the week and we were amazed by all of the wonderful costumes! Well done to all of the parents and guardians who helped out with the costumes. Well done to the all of the teachers who dressed up too! We are looking forward to next year's event already!!
