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.

 


Halloween Fun

Summer Gardening.

Ms Coleman was very busy recently helping the children plant some healthy vegetables in our school garden. They also planted some flowers in front of the school, next to the railings. Sometime soon we hope to see some bright coloured flowers as we walk to school in the morning.

Fun in Early Start

The children in early start had great fun recently while out in the yard. They brought some of their toys out that roll and raced them around the track. They then tried to catch some bubbles without bursting them.

STEM in the School

The school has borrowed Bee-Bots from the Cork Education Support Centre for the last couple of weeks. There are small robots that can be easily programmed by the children. The children are having great fun with them learning how to code.
