Healthy Early Years Award Level 3 for Colinton

We are proud to announce Cranley Colinton is one of the very few nurseries in Edinburgh to be awarded Healthy Early Years level 3 Award. This is a joint initiative with City Edinburgh Council and NHS.

In order to become an accredited health promoting early years establishment, the nursery had to record current good practice in health and wellbeing, and identified areas for future action.

Areas which were looked at and inspected were:

Curriculum, Teaching & Learning
Ethos & Climate
Physical Environment
Role of Specialist Services
Links with Family & Community
Staff Health and Wellbeing

Once the new accreditation process has been finalised and implemented across all early years settings, it will be further supported and supplemented by additional support visits to establishments undertaken by CEC and NHS health improvement staff. The aim of these visits is to provide overall quality control and to monitor establishments’ ongoing support needs.
