Scoil Chaitríona Baggot Street continues to experience great success with our Admissions Class.
We are registered to participate in the ECCE scheme and 15 places are open to children who are pre-enrolled for Junior Infants for the following year. Like all other ECCE schemes in operation throughout the country, it is free of charge.
Introduced to our school in 2008, we have found our Admissions class to be an invaluable experience for children as they prepare for Junior Infants. As well as providing wonderful opportunities for early childhood education and socialisation, it also allows the children and their parents to become a part of our school community before officially entering formal education in the Junior Infants class. The children get to know each other, as well as our school community in general, in advance of starting 'Big School' the following September. The children in our Admissions class are also included in many of our school celebrations, such as our visit from Santa Claus, our Easter Egg hunt, Sport-for-All Day and our end-of-year Prize-Giving.
Our Admissions class operates out of a bright, spacious classroom which is beside the Junior Infants classroom. It is well-equipped with a wide range of age-appropriate resources and materials to allow the children to develop early Numeracy and Literacy skills and to learn through play.
To avail of a place in our Admissions class from September 2016, your child must be 3 years of age by June 30th 2016. Your child must also be fully toilet-trained.
Due to child/teacher ratios for our Admissions class, places are limited and offered on a strictly first-come-first served basis. If you would like to enrol your child in our Admissions Class, please download and return the Admissions Class Enrolment Form. Please note that by filling out this Enrolment form, your child is also entered into the Junior Infant intake for the following year and so you won't have to fill out another application form.
