Butterfly Room

Butterfly Room

Children and staff were asked ‘What matters to me?’  From a group discussion this was the answer.
Our ELC (butterfly room) can take children aged 3-5 years.  The large room offers children a variety of resources to explore, play and learn with.  There are 8 curricular areas that Riverside Rascals implement into the children’s learning that help our children, gain the knowledge, skills, and attributes that they need to move on into school.

The room operates on a free flow basis where children are encouraged to make choices and decisions for themselves.  We aim to be outside for at least 50% of our day and are constantly developing our outdoor classroom, ‘We know what the benefits of outdoor play and learning can bring for young children in terms of their health and wellbeing,’  – Out to play joint document by Care Inspectorate and Scottish Government.

Each child is given a key worker, this will be the person that is your first point of contact if you wish to discuss anything about your child.  A ‘ My Learning Story’ is kept for every child with photos, pictures, observations and development milestones.
 
Being part of our community is so important to us, we have made many friends and connections within our local area including, the library, 
Blarbuie woodland, the swimming pool, Ardfenaig Residential home, Alzheimer’s Scotland and weekly trips to the supermarket to buy snack.
The best bit is getting to go on the bus and using our public transport links.
