Pre-Birth to Three

Our curriculum is in line with local and national curricular guidelines.  At Woodlands Nursery we follow the        "Pre-Birth to Three Supporting Our Youngest Children" guidelines. These are the 4 key features of effective practice in this age group (0-2 years):

  • Rights of the Child
  • Relationships
  • Responsive Care
  • Respect

These are to be approached in a sensitive and respectful way and allow nursery practitioners to interpret these guidelines and adapt them to suit their own practice and use them as a framework for planning our own learning experiences.

Curriculum for Excellence

The Curriculum for Excellence builds on the solid foundations developed in the critical years of pre-birth to 3 years.  From the age of 3 years your child experiences will be based on the Curriculum for Excellence guidelines.
