Aistear is being updated

The NCCA has started the process of updating Aistear: the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework (NCCA, 2009). Phase 1 of the consultation will end on April 29th, 2022. To find out more about why NCCA is doing this update, you can watch the introductory video;  or read a short Background Paper about updating Aistear; or listen to NCCA’s CEO, Arlene Forster talk about the process.

Over the next two months, there are a number of ways for you to share your views, including:

  1. Completing an online questionnaire: one for those working in or involved in education and one for parents/guardians

The findings from Phase 1 will be used to develop proposals for an updated Aistear. A second phase of consultation on those proposals will then take place. In both the current Phase 1 and the following Phase 2 consultations, your views are important to us. Please do take part and keep in touch with what’s happening on and by following NCCA on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
