The naíonra is an early-immersion setting for children aged 3-5 years, supervised by an early-years teacher. Children of this age learn through play and this is done through the Irish language in a naíonra setting. The naíonra aims to:
- Support the child’s overall development during their early years
- Help children who are being raised with Irish to enrich their language skills by providing early-years education through their home language
- Help children acquire a second language in a natural setting
- Provide an excellent service so that children are assured of a safe, enjoyable and beneficial experience in a friendly environment, under the supervision of qualified staff.
