The underpinning ethos of the playgroup is to follow the codes of conduct laid out by the Scottish Social services Council, the National Care Standards and Early Years Scotland. We recognise the importance of adopting a child centred approach whereby the needs, interests and concerns of the child inform the planning and provision of an appropriate curriculum.
