Community Learning & Development and Musselburgh Grammar School are working in partnership to develop and deliver a Child Development Course for S3 students. The course will be delivered to 40 students (2 classes) for 2 hours per week for the duration of the school year starting June 2014. The course aims to provide students with an introduction to child development and an opportunity to increase knowledge and skills in childcare, storytelling, play, healthy eating, baby and child First Aid. They will also be able to do short term placements in local childcare settings to apply classroom learning. The course aims to provide valuable life skills for students as parents of the future, and increase employability schools.
