The National Practice Guidance on Early Learning and Childcare: Building the Ambition, supports Scottish Government’s ambitious and transformational expansion of early learning and childcare. The document aims to enthuse, guide and support the changes that will need to take place so that early learning and childcare are indivisible through the creation of a holistic and seamless learning journey from birth to starting school.
This guidance on early learning and childcare builds upon Pre-Birth to Three and Curriculum for Excellence early level from 3 years to 6 years. It provides detailed, practical guidance on the experiences and interactions necessary to deliver the learning journey at the most important developmental stage for babies, toddlers and young children. It describes what is good practice in creating caring and nurturing settings that allow wellbeing, communication, curiosity, inquiry and creativity to flourish.
