What we do
At Raigmore ELC we aim to provide a safe, nurturing environment for the children. We work as a team to ensure each child’s individual needs are met and supported throughout the sessions. We support the learning and development of the children through play and experiences. During the sessions, we provide a healthy snack and teach children about the importance of washing hands. We also support children through toilet training and work with the parents ensuring good communication throughout
At Raigmore OOSC we also provide a safe environment where children can take part in group activities or individual activities. The children can enjoy games outdoors and in, with staff taking part and providing the resources needed. Throughout the session, there is a healthy snack provided and children can take part in preparing and choosing the snacks throughout the week
