How to Find Us

It is our pleasure to welcome you and your child to Carstairs Junction Early Learning and Childcare (ELC). We look forward to building a strong, positive partnership with you and your family to ensure the best opportunities for your child as they learn and grow.


We aim to:
  • Provide a safe, inclusive and nurturing learning environment which builds resilience and where every child is valued and respected as an individual.
  • Create motivating learning opportunities, both indoors and outdoors, which encourages creativity, exploration and inquiry.
  • Deliver a curriculum which offers high quality, challenging and open-ended learning experiences through play.
  • Support children to become leaders of their own learning by ensuring opportunities for children to discuss, plan and evaluate their experiences and resources are well planned.
  • Facilitate partnership working with our parents, carers, other agencies and the wider community to meet the needs of every child and ensure they achieve their full potential.
