Abstract

Cowgate Under 5’s Centre is situated in Edinburgh, Scotland (see Figure 19.1). Attending children are aged between 3 months and 5 years. The Centre is open 52 weeks a year and from 8:00 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. The intake comes from all across the city and beyond and includes children from a rich range of cultural, social and ethnic backgrounds. There are three playrooms in the centre. Our community of children, parents and staff are free to move fluidly between all spaces and interrelate with whom they choose. In this way our children are nomadic, free to explore.
