Playgroup

Playgroup

When a child turns three they move up to our playgroup. Here we continue to encourage and stimulate the physical, intellectual, language, emotional and social skills of children through play.

We follow the guidelines laid down in the Curriculum for Excellence.

The curriculum for the pre-school stage is designed to support children in all aspects of their emotional, social, cognitive and physical development. This in turn should encourage the children to become increasingly independent, responsible and eager to progress in their learning. The eight curricular areas are:
• Expressive arts
• Health & Wellbeing
• Languages
• Mathematics
• Religious and moral education
• Science
• Social studies
• Technologies
These learning and development requirements are central to all our playgroup activities.

Local authority funded places are available from the first full term following a childs third birthday.
