Parents, take extra care when driving to nursery, the Hannahstown Hill is pretty bad, as is the hill at Homefit. It may be safer to park your car on the road and walk in to collect your child!❗SNOWFALL WARNING❗

Drive only if necessary. Back roads are treacherous & appear to be untreated. Stick to treated main roads.

This is Quarterland Road just before Nutts Corner from the Hannastown direction ⚠️

Road at Ballymac also severe...⚠️
Colinglen is getting worse by the minute ⚠️
Hannastown is barely drivable ⚠️

Little ones cry for many different reasons, it’s their way to communicate their needs. Quite often we rush in to ‘fix’ it for them, when we hear our babies cry it can make us uncomfortable and even stressed. Magda Gerber teaches us to slow down, listen to our children and to accept their feelings! ... See MoreSee Less

For those children who have just moved to our fantastic Toddler room, this is what they have been up to......

Aisling Day Care
Our Toddler Room are part of the Eager and Able to Learn Programme for 2yr olds which is a research programme designed by Early Years the Organisation for Young Children. It was developed with the aim of improving young children's eagerness and ability to learn through enhancing their physical, social, emotional and linguistic development.
In term 1 we focus on giving children lots of experiences to explore their cross lateral development, which refers to movement that alternately uses each side of the body and helps to link the two hemispheres of the brain.

We have been making ‘home from home’ areas for many years, using lamps, rugs, cushions, aromatherapy diffusers and classical music to create calm relaxing and most importantly homely environments for children......only recently have we learned that there is a name for it, ‘hygge’.
Check out our friends at Mini Explorers who are passionate about giving children this experience!Photos from winter themed session last Monday, next session 4th February, each session we host is inspired by “hygge” more and more, which is a Scandinavian word for mood, coziness and comfort. Anyone who works in a quality early years setting will know this term, our great friends at Aisling Day Care try to achieve this concept in their play rooms, and from we have seen and they definitely have achieved it and more.

Our sessions have messy dry play which is themed each month, lots of opportunity for development, learning and most importantly fun!

When visiting my sister in law in Sweden a few years ago, I was obsessed by the “feel” I got from the homes and places I visited, and I learned that there’s an actual term for it!

Things we do to create this feel, are to have an minimal play area, try to use as much natural materials, and embrace the open windows to look outside. There’s just a natural calm and our sessions in Ikea are relaxed and calm for both parent/ carer and child.

We know however that we’re not a child care or Learning setting but we are trying to achieve a warm, welcoming atmosphere for our mini explorers.

Yes we do get messy, yes we do have siblings and friends that maybe chuck some lentils over the place, yes we do have lots of fun but mostly importantly parents and children are getting an opportunity to just sit and play. I can’t describe it really, it just works.

Also it’s free for Ikea family members!
