Siolta is a quality assurance programme which provides guidance and support for all those concerned with the well-being, learning and development of young children.
It is relevant for a wide range of settings including creches and nurseries, pre-schools and playgroups, childminders and the infant classes in primary schools.
The framework is based on 12 Principles of Quality which reflect the values underpinning Siolta and the vision of quality provision it offers.
The practical application of these principles are supported through Siolta's Standards of Quality.
The Siolta framework is a valuable tool which supports practitioners to define quality in the early years, reflect on their own practice and improve the quality of their service.
