Clonakilty Kindergarten & The Community

Children don't join the kindergarten, Families do.

The sense of community doesn't stop when you leave the classroom. The Kindergarten is about Families. Continuing the ethos in which it was set up the Kindergarten is run by caring and qualified teachers with the full support of the parents in active roles in and around the Kindergarten. As parents we are the leading educators of our children, and the Kindergarten provides the opportunity to shape the care your child receives and to contribute to strengthening a valuable community resource in doing so.

Current families recommend to new familes and past familes return with younger children to build on that relationship. The Kindergarten building becomes a temporary home for our families and we enjoy sharing it. Our parents both past and present now reflect the very changing face of our society.

Like children, communities grow and change.

Our Kindergarten community has grown from the handful of parents to a busy network of 40 families. From its beginning of Steiner roots the Kindergarten has retained those philopsophies within its childcare structure. Keeping rhythms and routines to daily and weekly activities and celebrating the cycle of the seasons has always set the Kindergarten apart from other preschools.

But communities change with the times.

The current demands on society call today for stronger connections with those around you. Shared tasks and local resources are ways in which  we support our locality.

The Kindergarten plays its part in developing green attitudes and nurturing those in our children for the future. Activities at the Kindergarten favour the atitudes of a changing society in relevant times.

Kindergarten and EVS in the community

For the past 7 years the annual EVS volunteers have also been part of not only the Kindergarten but the wider community as a whole. Our students become part of the Clonakilty Community,  they connect with the local aupairs and rent accomodation with in the town.

Each year our EVS volunteers organise the Kindergarten contribution to the St. Patricks day parade, a very popular event with local families, schools and groups. The children dress as different stories or charcters and the EVS volunteers help in the setting up and running of this event. In addition to this, the students run short seminars at the local senior schools on their country and language while also encouraging the youngsters in taking part in a foreign exchange programme  themselves. This year they are also embarking on an International event for more of the european students within West Cork.

It is because of the Kindergarten that the students come to Ireland and while they are here they support our service greatly. But they also get involved locally, experience and contribute to the wide variety of life in Ireland today.
