• penguins

    We have space for 26 Penguins, aged between 2 and 3 years, who are looked after in a ratio of 1:5.

    The staff team are supported by a trainee and led by a Lead Practitioner who makes sure that the individual needs of all our children are met.  The children in the Penguins have access to their own garden and can often be found outside at play.  

    Often children in this age group begin and master toilet training. Staff escort them regularly to their own toilet cubicles to facilitate this and will work with you to ensure that we are working in partnership to help our little ones achieve this milestone.

    At this age the children are introduced to some of our tutor led activities including Art with Clare and Caterpillar Music with Linzi.  These activities help introduce them to new people, new skills, new experiences and a new environment, all of which help to build their resilience and promote independence.


    A key focus for our Under 3’s is South Lanarkshire Council’s Together We Can.

    This document provides clear guidance for staff working in early years on how best to support our youngest children.  All the activities provided for our Under 3’s are designed with this in mind.

    Together We Can has been developed in line with the values, purpose and principles of the Curriculum for Excellence and is therefore an excellent building block for the learning the children will go on to undertake in the 3-5’s and indeed when they move on to Primary and Secondary education at school.

    Together We Can focuses on 5 areas of development:

    1. health and well being
    2. emotional spiritual well being
    3. social development
    4. physical development, and
    5. cognitive development

    Together We Can recognises the important role parents and carers have in their child’s development and we will work in partnership with you to take forward their development in a holistic way.
