“I am an owner/manager of a sessional preschool located in a rural setting in Ireland. Part of our curriculum includes introducing the children to their wider community. In this setting we believe in offering high quality care and we do this by reflecting on our current practice. I sat down with my staff and we reviewed our process of connecting children with the community, we felt we could do more. One aspect we felt we were lacking was helping children to develop relationships with members of the wider community…” (Ireland – Aishling’s story)
