In line with all other establishments, Early Years centres are implementing the Curriculum for Excellence;

A curriculum for excellence is a curriculum for children and young people aged 3-18 years. 

It recognises that children learn through all experiences, in the family and community. The aspiration is that every young child should become successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors in life.


The curriculum is the totality of experiences which are planned for children and young people throughout their education. Experiences and outcomes set out expectations for children’s learning and development through 8 key areas:

  • Expressive arts
  • Language and Literacy
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Mathematics and numeracy
  • Religious and moral education
  • Sciences
  • Social studies
  • Technologies

Experiences set expectations for the kinds of activities which promote learning development.

Outcomes set out what the child or young person will be able to explain, apply or demonstrate.

All curriculum planning is displayed outside the playrooms, and parents/carers are invited to give their ideas and suggestions.

Planning in early years is based on the children’s developmental needs, and the children’s interests are at the core of this planning. 

Staff will set out individual learning activities to scaffold your child’s interests.

The centre also has a variety of resources, which can be borrowed and used at home.
