About Us

We know that the early years of a child’s life are crucial to their development and our practitioners work to ensure that every child gets the best possible start in their education at Blossom Tree Children's Nursery.


Curriculum for Excellence

At Blossom Tree we promote play-based education and adhere to national guidance from the Curriculum for Excellence (CfE). The CfE is split into 4 Capacities which are:

  • Successful Learners
  • Confident Individuals
  • Effective Contributors
  • Responsible Citizens

Additionally, the CfE highlights 3 Core Areas for Learning:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Health & Wellbeing

Learning Experiences planned by our staff integrate the CfE Capacities and Core Areas for Learning, enabling all children to maximise their potential. We are supported in this through partnership working with our local council.



Schematic Play


Schemas are behaviours that children go through when they are exploring the world and trying to find out how things work. Children have a very strong drive to repeat actions, move things from one place to another, cover things up, put things into containers, move in circles and throw things. Understanding schemas can help us to provide what children need for their learning.




At Blossom Tree, we nurture and support this crucial part of leaning and encourage the children to use a wide range of resources in a way that meets their learning interests.
