Additional information

Cardross Primary Early Learning and Childcare Centre provides pre-school education for up to 30 children from Cardross and the surrounding area. Staff work in partnership with parents in developing children’s learning experiences. This involves learning about, valuing and building on children’s prior learning experiences so that they become confident, eager and enthusiastic learners who are looking forward to starting school. Under developments of a Curriculum for Excellence, we strive to help children develop as Successful Learners (learning to learn), Responsible Citizens (learning to live with others), Confident Individuals (learning to be AND Effective Contributors (learning to do). To do this, we will seek to:

  • Provide a safe and stimulating environment, in which children feel happy and secure
  • Encourage the emotional, social, physical, creative and intellectual development of children
  • Promote the welfare of children
  • Encourage positive attitudes to self and others and develop confidence and self esteem
  • Create opportunities for play
  • Encourage children to explore, appreciate and respect their environment
