Síolta in practice

Síolta need not feel like another item to add to do list, but can be woven and interconnected throughout daily ECEC practice.  Síolta is the quality framework for ECEC and affects all aspects of practice.  However, educators often find it difficult to understand how to incorporate Síolta into daily practice. 


This practical workshop, based on my popular book "Síolta in Practice", highlights how Síolta is in everything that we do and to implement Síolta means drawing upon all other areas of our knowledge and professional practice.

STEAM in early childhood

STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, the arts and maths.

In this workshop, learn how to introduce STEAM activities which are fun, child-led, and support quality early learning experiences for children from 0-6 years old.  Technologies used will be unplugged, non-digital and non-screen based! Suggested STEAM activities will use resources and materials already easily available in the ECEC environment.

STEAM in school-age care

Learn how to introduce STEAM activities which are fun, interactive, hands-on and interesting for children in school age care/afterschool care.  Technologies used will be unplugged, non-digital and non-screen based! Suggested STEAM activities will use resources and materials already easily available in the SAC environment.

Teamwork and professional practice

This workshop will focus on working together as a unified team with a positive working relationship based on communication, peer support and respect.  All of which are vitally important for quality ECEC.  

The quality of our interactions and relationships with each other as educators, managers and leaders, has a direct impact on the children in our setting.  When we work and collaborate together in a positive way, we role model this behaviour for children and create a positive and supportive ECEC environment for all adults and children in the setting.

ethical boundaries and professionalism

Ethical boundaries are key to professional ECEC practice.  Setting these boundaries supports the development of trusting relationships between educators, parents, families and children.

The ECEC profession means having access to vulnerable children, access to personal/sensitive information and the ability to impact the lives of children and families.

This workshop will focus on handling difficult ethical dilemmas and decisions and setting boundaries between professional and personal relationships.
