Matt Talbot Nursery School was chosen by BELB & SELB to host an ‘Incredible Years Programme for Parents’.  Miss Rioghnach Doherty (Teacher) and Mrs Ciara Smith (Parent Co-Ordinator) were trained to deliver the course and recruited 12 fabulous parents who attended each week for 19 weeks.  
The programme focused on how parents can help their children to develop a variety of skills in areas such as playing, learning, listening, concentrating, social skills and behaviour.  The programme was delivered in a relaxed and friendly environment which provided opportunities for parents to , meet other parents, share experiences and learn new ideas.  
This was also a cross-community programme and Matt Talbot Nursery School were linked with staff and parents of Tudor Lodge Nursery School.  Parents graduated on Friday 8th June 2012 in the Beechlawn Hotel obtaining a Level 2 OCN Certificate.  We would like to congratulate the parents and staff of Matt Talbot Nursery School for this wonderful achievement and wish them every success with the next stage of their education.
