Childcare in Langholm, Dumfries and Galloway

Langholm Playcare Ltd is a Registered Charity No. SCO24553

Childcare for 3 to 5 year olds

 

Langholm Playcare Ltd provides a safe, happy, interesting and stimulating environment through an excellent range of activities and learning opportunities. Through play children become confident and independent. 

 

Children learn to share and respect their peers, adults and the environment. Funded Early Learning and Childcare is provided to children between 3 and 5 years. Eligible children are entitled to receive 600 funded hours delivered pro-rata depending on birth date. These  can be taken as 5 sessions of 3 hours 10 minutes per week during term time or on a more flexible basis spread over more weeks throughout the year. Planning for these sessions takes into account the Scottish Executives Curriculum for Excellence Framework, though emphasis is on delivering learning through play. 

 

A variety of resources are used for this age range to deliver the eight curriculum areas. All of which are provided within a supportive play environment. 

 

We have an upstairs games hall to extend our physical activity with an extensive range of equipment. 

 

Staff provide support to encourage the skills of the children to develop which enables an easier transition into nursery/school.

 

Things to bring:

Parents are asked to provide the following items, clearly marked or labelled: 


- Clothes worn should be suitable for messy play such as playdoh, water, painting etc 

- Change of clothes 

- Lunch in a lunch box 

- Coat, hat and gloves in winter 

- Sunscreen and sun hat in summer 


Please notify staff of any changes to routine. Please send your child in old, easily washed clothes so they don’t have to worry about getting dirty. Please ensure your child can go to the toilet on their own (if not in nappies).

We offer pick ups to and from school and nursery. Ask us for details!
