Your child's foundation is important

'The central task of education (or early learning) is to implant a will and facility for learning; it should produce not learned but learning people. The truly human society is a learning society, where grandparents, parents, and children are students together.' - Eric Hoffer

The above quotation embodies our philosophy to early learning and childcare as we foster curiosity, independence and a love of learning that is central to the Curriculum for Excellence. Your child will follow the Scottish Government ‘Curriculum for Excellence’ in their pre and ante pre-school years or 'the Pre-birth to Three Curriculum' for those aged under 3 years. Your child will experience the fun and freedom of learning through play. Your child will also learn to make choices and develop to their full potential in a happy and secure environment.

Extra-curricular experiences

We have an extensive timetable of extra-curricular experiences which are offered to the children: cookery classes; forest schools; exercise sessions; art galleries and museums (pre-school children); and swimming lessons in partnership with Hamilton Water Palace.
