Essentials to a child's early learning and development

Early Learning policy:


'The central task of education (or early learning) is to implant a will and facility for learning; it should produce not learned but learning people. The truly human society is a learning society, where grandparents, parents, and children are students together.'





The above quotation embodies our philosophy to early learning and child care as we foster curiosity, independence and a love of learning and is central to the Curriculum for Excellence. Your child will follow the Scottish Government ‘Curriculum for Excellence’ in their pre and ante pre-school years or 'the pre-birth to three Curriculum' for those under age 3 years. Your child will experience fun and freedom of learning through play. Your child will also learn to make choice and develop to their full potential in a happy and secure environment.


The curriculum: Children of all ages will have lots of fun while learning to become a confident individual, effective contributors, global citizens and hence successful learners - the overarching principles of the curriculum. As well as engaging in the wide range of subjects defined in the curriculum, they will explore the values set out in the curriculum as they learn to help others understand boundaries and develop good behavioural and social skills. We ensure a good balance between adult led and child led learning and the child will also learn to make individual choices and understand the world around them.

The first few years of a child’s early learning and childcare are the stepping stones to future success. Take advantage of one of the finest and most trustworthy kindergarten and pre-school services in Hamilton. Hopscotch Childcare Centre will help your child to reach their excellence.
