Healthy Step’s Curriculum

Children’s joy and happiness are a big part of their learning. At Healthy Steps, we encourage them to have fun as a part of their education, with child-led activities which are adapted to their abilities and interests.

We use the Pre Birth to Three & Curriculum for Excellence as part of our nursery curriculum, all of our children are encouraged to learn through play and with kindness, prompting them to use their own curiosity and problem-solving skills to achieve goals and expand their learning.

Curriculum for Excellence places learners at the heart of education. At its centre are four fundamental capacities. These capacities reflect and recognise the lifelong nature of education and learning. The Curriculum for Excellence aims to ensure that all children and young people in Scotland develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they will need if they are to flourish in life, learning and work, now and in the future, and to appreciate their place in the world. At Healthy Steps we believe our innovative approach gives children a bright and positive start in life and incorporates these two curriculums perfectly for all our little ones.
