Welcome to the Childhood Practice topic on the SSSC Learning Zone. This area is intended to provide access to resources and information for anyone working in Day Care of Children's Services in Scotland. Over time, with your help, we hope this section will grow and develop and provide you with opportunities to access learning and development materials, communicate with your colleagues across Scotland and share examples of good practice.
As a starting point, this area contains examples of current policy-driven practitioner research undertaken by graduates studying towards the BA in Childhood Practice. We hope to add examples of practitioner research on an ongoing basis and we look forward to seeing the fruits of the Childhood Practice Award in future. In addition to this there are free-to-use downloadable podcasts and presentations around childhood practice that can be used to support workforce planning, development and teaching and learning. Going forward, you will have the chance to contribute to discussion forums in relation to childhood practice, and will also find links to frequently asked questions (FAQs) journals and Scottish Government policy documents, such as the Early Years Framework and GIRFEC, which relate to childhood practice.
