At Milngavie ELCC we aim to raise awareness amongst our nursery community of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. We have a new wall display in our reception area to share with children, parents and families how nursery experiences support children to learn about and access their rights. There is also a space within the wall display for parents to write their ideas about how we can add breadth and depth to our learning on this topic. If you have any suggestions please write them on the wall or speak with Caroline or Lynn.
Click on the link below to see a child friendly version of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Over the next few months we will be focusing on:
Article 8 – the right to an identity
Article 12 – the right to an opinion and for it to be listened to and taken seriously
Article 15 – the right to be with friends
Article 31 – the right to play and relax by doing things like sports, music and drama
Article 37 – the right not to be punished in a cruel or hurtful way
Keep an eye out for further blog posts highlighting how we support children to access and experience these rights.
