Self-evaluation approach

  • How good is our early learning and childcare? (2016) provides a suite of quality indicators. These support staff to look inwards; to scrutinise their work and evaluate what is working well for babies, toddlers and young children, and what could be better. The framework is designed to be used to support self-evaluation for self-improvement by practitioners at all levels.

Key Documents used and referred to support our ELC Improvement Journey

  • The Early Years Framework (2008) sets out a vision for early years services in Scotland to ensure that children get 'the best start in life'.
  • Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) builds on the solid foundations developed in the critical years pre-birth to three. Within CfE, children are entitled to a broad general education from age three until the end of S3. The early level of CfE for most children spans the period of time from age three until the end of Primary 1. It supports a smooth transition in learning between ELC and primary school.
  • Realising the Ambition: Being Me (2020) is the new national practice guidance for early years in Scotland.  It builds upon the original principles and philosophy of Pre-Birth to 3 and Building the Ambition.  It covers children's learning and development from birth into the early years of primary school
