For children aged 3-5 years, we are in partnership with Dundee City Council, and follow the Curriculum for Excellence for all children. The daily programme offers an extensive range of activities which is complimented through 'Children's Choice' as well as structured play. Group Time is provided as part of the daily programme, allowing children to interact in small group activities with their key workers and peers. The children are out daily for walks in the local area. Daisies Kindergarten uses the 'Walkodile' system when children are on short trips or going for a walk. The Walkodiles keep children safer by linking them securely to a flexible spine. Staff have greater control and children are unable to move away from the group. The group are also more visible to other road users, and children love going for a walk with Walkodile.
As in the 2-3's area, Key Workers play a vital role in the development of the children, and will liaise with parents/carers regularly. Regular assessments of the children are recorded, enabling Daisies Kindergarten to provide a development report twice yearly, which can then be discussed at subsequent Parents Evenings.
