Aistear

What is Aistear?

Aistear is a curriculum framework for children from birth to six years in Ireland. It gives information to help plan for and provide enjoyable and challenging learning experiences so that all children can grow and develop as competent and confident learners.

How does Aistear work?

The Aistear framework is based on 12 broad principles – many of which are similar to the aims and objectives of the primary school curriculum.

Practically speaking this means that teachers will deliver the curriculum in an integrated / thematic way.  Teachers will prioritise play in the classroom and school environment.
