You may or may not have heard your child talking about Sally, Hugo and friends. These are not new children in our nursery but are in fact the names of our Cockenzie Pea People.
Part of our nursery development plan last year was to improve how we embed the GIRFEC wellbeing indicators into everyday life in the nursery. Our aim was to find a way to explain to the children what they need to help them grow, develop and thrive. We decided to name the wellbeing icons from the Care Inspectorate documents and use them as characters to help the wellbeing words become part of everyday conversation in the nursery.
The children are encouraged to think which icon relates to different parts of their lives and we have pictures of the pea people up around the nursery. You will also see them appearing on the entries in the children’s learning stories.
