Learning Through Play

Children learn best through play so I strive to offer a variety of activities that will support them in their development. I support the GIRFEC approach and follow principles set out in the Realising the Ambition guidance and the Curriculum For Excellence to support children in the following development and wellbeing areas:

I keep learning folders for all children and will also make notes in your child’s online contact diary. These records will enable me to make plans on how I can help your child move onto the next stage of their development and are also of course useful for you to see how your child is progressing.

If your child is attending school or nursery, I am more than happy to talk with their teacher or key worker to discuss how I can best support their learning during their time with me.

The activities and resources I use in my setting include:

Books and Dvds

Small world toys

Construction toys (Lego, Duplo, mega blocks etc)

Pretend play (toy kitchen, shop, doctors set etc).

Dressing Up Clothes

Water play

Arts and Crafts.

Music, singing and rhymes

Cooking & Baking


Outdoor play and equipment

Computers / ICT Equipment

Outings & Playgroups
