Information

The Curriculum

The playgroup recognises the importance of quality pre school care and education for young children. It is committed to providing a stimulating and challenging environment which will develop and broaden children’s learning experiences, leaving them confident, eager, highly motivated and disposed to learn more.

 

As a member of Early Years Scotland, the playgroup believes in a developmentally appropriate curriculum which takes into account the importance of the whole child and the stage of development he or she has reached. It recognises that people learn in a variety of different ways and that for very young children the following opportunities make powerful contributions to a child’s learning:
• To have a first hand experience of a range of different activities and learning situations
• To play
• To talk, interact and socialise with other people

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE CHILD
The playgroup follows the birth to 3 years and 3-18 years Curriculum for Excellence which has regard for the best interests of the child.
We do this by:
• Identifying and assessing the individual needs of the children
• Building on children’s pervious experience
• Keeping profiles on individual children to monitor progress and inform planning
• Recognising the interdependence of care and education by paying due regard to the welfare, safety and well being of the child
• Adopting a flexible approach to planning the curriculum to incorporate ideas, interests and concerns indicated by the children and the parents and carers
• Encouraging all children to participate in the full range of activities and experiences offered
• Working with parents and carers
• Fostering equal opportunities between adults and children involved in the group.
