An information evening open to all parents interested in finding out more about High/Scope learning methods in educating children as well as the Early Childhood Care and Education Scheme (ECCE), which gives parents a free pre-school year, will take place on Thursday, June 9th in Grassroots Preschool, Rioch Court, Kilkenny at 7.30 pm.
High/Scope learning methods are relatively new to Kilkenny but are widely practiced in the US and Europe. These methods develop children’s ability to problem solve, build self-confidence and acquire a positive self-image as well as a good attitude to others. At its core, High/Scope is about empowering children in a stimulating, fun and secure environment. The demand for High/Scope education is experiencing increasing demand from Kilkenny parents, particularly with the Governments introduction of ECCE scheme which provides a free childcare place for pre-school children at accredited centres for a year.
To give parents a real taster of what High/Scope is about and what children learning through High/Scope experience, a mini-workshop for parents in active learning, which helps children learn by doing, and conflict resolution will be held as part of the evening. The childcare and education information evening is being hosted by Bridget Dowling of Grassroots Preschool and Kilkenny’s only independent High/Scope trainer.
“High/Scope has been proven to increase children’s confidence, initiative and ability to progress in school. I have seen it work so well for children in Grassroots and am hosting the information evening to help parents learn more about this method and give them an insight into how it works for their children. The ECCE scheme is excellent for parents and we are currently enrolling for September” says Bridget Dowling of Grassroots Preschool.
