Our Childcare Practise

At West Wood Childcare we strive to provide hands on meaningful play experiences. We do so through the following ways:

  • Using Aistear and Síolta based practise
  • Being child lead and play based
  • Taking an eclectic approach- bits from different theories and methodologies
  • Following children’s interests and exploring concepts and topics as they are meaningful to the children in their lives
  • Promoting, nurturing and developing a love for lifelong learning- their curiosity and promoting creative thinking
  • Use of physical activity
  • Utilising that we are part of the health club- promoting an active lifestyle from birth, which in turn is the children’s norm not a lifestyle change later in life
  • Daily use of Fitzone- a 4 levelled indoor activity centre that has ball pools, rope bridges, slides etc. This is great for gross motor development, physical activity and their social skills, exploring and thinking, creativity and imagination
  • Group swimming sessions for each class group every week Request a brochure
