The biggest of our two ‘baby’ rooms, our Doves room is typically home to the more able and mobile of our under 2’s. Larger that our Robin Room, the Doves Room affords children more freedom of movement as they develop and grow into inquisitive toddlers. They have direct access to their own garden and are encouraged to play outside each day.
Children from our Doves room regularly take part in bookbug sessions at our local library.
A key focus for our Under 3’s is South Lanarkshire Council’s Together We Can.
This document provides clear guidance for staff working in early years on how best to support our youngest children. All the activities provided for our Under 3’s are designed with this in mind.
Together We Can has been developed in line with the values, purpose and principles of the Curriculum for Excellence and is therefore an excellent building block for the learning the children will go on to undertake in the 3-5’s and indeed when they move on to Primary and Secondary education at school.
Together We Can focuses on 5 areas of development:
Together We Can recognises the important role parents and carers have in their child’s development and we will work in partnership with you to take forward their development in a holistic way.
