“The Sharing From The Start initiative which involves over 2400 children is supported by the European Union’s Peace IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body. It involves early years settings throughout Northern Ireland and the Southern Border counties forming cross-community partnerships, and the children taking part in joint curricular classes, improving educational outcomes and promoting good relations.”
This week we have experienced our first session of “Sharing from the start” and enjoyed a visit from our friends at First Steps playgroup and Castletower Nursery unit. It was lovely to see the children playing together and the staff working together for the benefit of all of the children. Activities like this allow us to develop good relationships with other pre-school providers in our area and hopefully establish a strong sense of community between us all.
In our nursery we have many children.
We’re different but really the same.
In our nursery we have many children
And sometimes we share the same name.
But inside, inside, inside our heart we’re the same, the same.
Inside, inside, inside our hearts we’re the same.
