Sugar and Spice came together with First Steps for a special Christmas event. This was the partnerships second face to face meeting this term and some parents were able to join in the fun, helping make decorations for each other’s trees.
Now into their sixth year of working together the two Tyrone pre-schools have had a whole range of shared sessions and opportunities including visits to each other’s preschool and Omagh Library where the children enjoyed rhyme and story time and arts and crafts.
Teachers have praised the exciting opportunities that shared education has provided for the children. They’ve seen friendships develop and they’re getting so confident exploring each other’s pre-schools. They’re always eager to visit each other and they love to welcome their new friends.
For the staff it’s a great opportunity to share resources and experiences. Feedback from parents is very positive and the children really enjoy it. From story time, to arts and crafts and outdoor play, it’s great for them to enjoy these curriculum based activities.
