|About||At Bizzy B's we provide a nurturing and stimulating environment that will enhance your child's overall development.|
|Description||We believe that early childhood is a time of great opportunity for learning and development and is a time of unprecedented growth. It marks the beginning of the child’s lifelong learning journey. At Bizzy B’s the children are afforded the opportunity to holistically grow and develop within a warm, caring environment with adults that recognise, respect and build on their needs and interests. Our ethos is an “active learning” approach. Active learning means that children have direct hands on experiences with people, objects, events and ideas. Children’s interests are at the heart of our programme.|
We have won two national awards from Early Childhood Ireland (National representative organisation for early childhood educators) the first was in 2012 and the second in 2013. The first was for our curriculum and in particular how we consider and engage in children's interests and introduce learning through theses interests.
The second, in 2013, was an 'Innovation Award' for parental involvement and the innovative way that we have encouraged parents and families to take part in daily sessions. It was stated that "Bizzy B's are proactive in supporting children and their parents in a myriad of ways before, during and after their time spent in Pre-school."
We are currently working towards a national quality award called 'Síolta'. The award defines the overall quality of our service - from equipment,internal and external environment, interaction and relationships with children and their parents, qualifications of staff, how we organise our service, how we relate to children and families, the content of what we teach and the way in which it is taught. This is the highest award that can be achieved in early childhood care and education and one that we will achieve this year, giving parents comfort in the knowledge that their child is receiving an excellent educational start.
