Building the Ambition

All Falkirk Council early years practitioners should have a working knowledge of the Building the Ambition national practice guidance document; which was published by Scottish Government in August 2014 to set the context for high quality ELCC.  Setting management teams should ensure that they and their staff use the “putting the guidance into practice” questions and the guidance about what babies, toddlers and young children need in ELCC settings, for training, professional dialogue and reflection, monitoring and self-evaluation purposes, thus ensuring their practice creates “caring and nurturing settings that allow wellbeing, communication, curiosity, inquiry and creativity to flourish.”
