In the 2-3 room, we use two documents – Pre-Birth to Three and Building the Ambition to help us plan for children’s learning. Staff carefully observe children during play and plan individually for children according to their stage of development.
In the 3-5 room we use Curriculum for Excellence to support the learning, attainment and achievement of children. It is important to ensure that children are acquiring the full range of skills and abilities relevant to growing, living and working in the contemporary world. Curriculum for Excellence aims to ensure that they will enjoy greater choice and opportunity to help realise their individual talents.
The Curriculum is divided into different levels. We will be working on the Early Level which starts in nursery and continues into Primary One. Curriculum for Excellence aims to focus practice upon the child and around the four capacities of education:
- successful learners
- confident individuals
- responsible citizens
- effective contributors
