Access the Manuals

Siolta manuals are currently out of print. We hope they will be available early in 2017.

Soft copies of the manuals are available below.

Please contact the Early Years education policy unit if you have any further enquiries.

The Manuals
You can access each manual in two ways:
  • Firstly, as a PDF document. This version gives you the full-text of each manual in one document and is the version you should access if you wish to print out the documents.
  • Secondly, as an interactive version. This version allows you to view the text online Standard by Standard, with active links that make it easier to cross-reference to related information for additional support and information.
