    Abstract

    This is the final report written at the conclusion of a three year Robertson Trust funded project at the Jeely Nursery in Castlemilk, Glasgow, 2007 to 2010. The project purpose was to meet the particular needs of children vulnerable to highly adverse social and economic circumstances, including those living with parental addiction. The aim was to develop a collaborative strategy which would, by involving children, nursery staff and parents together, help to build enduring resources for the emotional resilience needed by children to overcome adversity and improve their chances of achieving educational success. The well validated premise underpinning the child-led pedagogy, Special Playtime, is that early negative attachment experiences can be transformed through direct positive experience with trained staff. The report examines the project using a three dimensional conceptual framework located in the literature on attachment, resilience and child-led pedagogy and focuses on the manner in which the several and differing relationships within the project interacted with and sustained each other.
