Aistear Workshop for Early Years Arts Practitioners


Thursday October 12, 3pm to 5pm
Studio 5, The Lab, Foley St, Dublin 1

Dublin City Council has identified Early Years Arts as an area for development, in the context of its Arts Education and Learning Policy and complementary initiatives from the Arts Council and Creative Ireland. As part of this decision, Preparing for Life ( an initiative of Northside Partnership) and Dublin City Council are collaborating on the Early Years Arts Residencies & Training Programme .

Early Years Arts Practitioners (from all arts disciplines) and those with an interest in developing their practice in this area are invited to a workshop facilitated by Sandra O’Neill, Aistear Co-ordinator for the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment. This will be the first in a series of opportunities offered to Early Years Artists and Educators.

Aistear is the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework used in all settings for children from birth-6 years. Published in 2009, Aistear aims to support practitioners, teachers and all those working with young children to develop and enrich the curricula they provide. Aistear is a holistic framework that supports all aspects of children’s learning, development and well-being.
