The Curriculums

Realising the Ambition: Being Me

Realising the Ambition builds on the original guidance Building the Ambition and Pre-Birth to Three, that our babies and children deserve the very best experiences throughout their learning journey; before birth and beyond. The guidance covers the period from birth through early childhood into primary education. It aspires to support practitioners in delivering what babies and young children need to give children the best start in life and for sector practice that reflects the principles of nurture, and the importance of relationships.
For older children we will also be guided by Curriculum for Excellence: Early Level Scottish Government which builds on the solid foundations developed in the critical years pre-birth to three. Our aim is to nurture each child's capacity to become a successful learner, confident individual, responsible citizen and effective contributor. Curriculum content will be within the broad curriculum areas of:
• Health and wellbeing
• Languages
• Mathematics
• Social studies
• Expressive arts
• Religious and moral education
• Sciences
• Technologies

Healthy Eating at Torphins Playgroup Preschool

The promotion of healthy eating is an important aspect of high-quality childcare and children should have a positive experience which helps to develop lifelong healthy eating habits.
Healthy Eating is promoted at Torphins Playgroup Pre-School by providing a well-balanced and nutritious diet. All children are offered healthy meals, snacks and drinks to help develop their health and well-being.
