We are delighted to be working together with Shaftesbury Nursery on a new project, ‘Sharing From The Start’. The project is supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme and managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB). ‘Sharing From The Start’ 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. We are looking forward to teaming up with Shaftesbury Nursery and sharing best practice. Through this project we will be in receipt of a robust package of supports which will include, training and mentoring from a Senior Early Years Specialist. It's a fantastic opportunity for the children and our setting to access a Shared Education Initiative which will support the achievement of quality standards and the delivery of the early years curriculum in both Northern Ireland and the Southern Border Counties.
