Getting Ready to Learn


Getting Ready to Learn is funded by the Department of Education and is a pre-school parent programme which we have participated in over the last few years. The programme aims to encourage and develop parental involvement in your child’s early learning as playing, reading and talking to your child will greatly increase your child’s language skills and how well they do at school.  Getting Ready to Learn will increase knowledge and understanding around pre-school development and provide ideas and suggestions for home learning.

We helped do this by on providing reading book bags and physical activity bags that would go home on a temporary basis. Due to Covid-19, we are unable to send home the book bags or activity bags this year. However, we are delighted that we had a successful application and the Getting Ready to Learn team have allocated us money to purchase resources to make up a bag of activities that all our children have been able to take home!
