Pre-Birth to Three Guidance
Pre-Birth to Three: Positive Outcomes for Scotland’s Children and Families is a document introduced by the Scottish Office, in association with Learning and Teaching Scotland to provide national guidance for all those whose work involves caring for babies and young children. The four key principles of Pre-Birth to Three are:
- Rights of the Child
- Responsive Care
Our nursery staff work very closely with the Pre-Birth to Three document to provide the quality experiences children under 3 years old need: from feeding and cuddles to sensory experiences, story telling, outdoor play and music.

In the Toddler room the Pre-Birth to Three Document is used by our nursery staff to provide the quality experiences your child needs at this stage as they begin to assert their independence and individuality.
The nursery staff will support your child through toilet training and developing independence at meal times in a secure, loving environment.
Examples of activities on offer for your child at this stage are: painting, gluing, drawing, sand play, water play, introduction to computers and interactive IT toys, cooking, baking, planting and growing, play dough, dressing up and role play, puppets, books, stories, rhymes, music and movement and singing.
Your child will be encouraged to access resources and exercise freedom of choice about the activities they wish to participate in. Stimulating conversation, interactive play and learning to socialise, share and make friends is all part of the day.
You will find more helpful information about the Toddler Rooms and the nursery facilities on our information page.
