We follow the Birth to Three Framework alongside other local and national guidelines. The well-being of children and young people is at the heart of GIRFEC. The approach uses SHANARRI indicators which represent basic requirements for children to grow and develop and reach their full potential.
We recognise the importance of the early years therefore offer stimulating, positive outcomes for children in our core to nurture their growth to compliment their ever changing development.
A wide range of activities are ever changing to stimulate, entertain and engage in to support learning and development and build on children’s interests. Each individual child’s needs are met with our safe warm, secure and welcoming environment.
Through learning opportunities and experiences we influence child development, attachments, play, transitions and aim to achieve positive outcomes using the 4 key principles, Respect, Responsive Care, Relationships and Rights of the Child for the best possible start.
