Our Story

Here at Happitots Nursery we follow the Curriculum for Excellence (CFE) placing focus on the value of learners’ experiences and how the role of the teacher or child care worker is so important in generating inspiring, challenging and motivating learning and teaching opportunities for the children in our care.

Through CFE we are ensuring that all children and young people are achieving their full potential. In order to do this our staff plan the children’s activities around what the children are interested in. In our pre-school rooms we have a variety of different methods of consulting with our children on what they want to learn. Some examples of this are mind mapping and children’s meetings where staff sit with the children and openly talk and discuss what they want to learn about. From these discussions staff plan activities to further children’s learning.

The CFE is split into 4 Capacities which are:

§ Successful Learners
§ Confident Individuals
§ Effective Contributors
§ Responsible Citizens

Staff provide activities for children which have breadth and depth and enhance their knowledge. Not only will the activities provided look at the 4 Capacities they will also look at the 3 Core areas for learning in the CFE. The core areas for learning are:

§ Literacy
§ Numeracy
§ Health & Wellbeing

Each activity planned by our staff will cross over into these 3 areas of learning.

Enabling all learners to maximise their potential is a key aspect of our role as child care practitioners at Happitots Nursery. Children learn when they are playing and having fun!
