Edinburgh Early Years have posted a series of 6 short, thought provoking podcasts which explore Realising the Ambition.
Many people who contributed to the development of the document feature in the podcasts, including Highland’s own James McTaggart as well as Lynn Taylor, Marion Burns and Liz Paterson from Education Scotland.
The more recent podcasts refer to how Realising the Ambition can support ELC settings, primary schools and communities during the current crisis.
Well worth listening to as we consider how we can best support our children and families before and during the reopening of ELC settings.
