Abstract

This is the first interim report undertaken for the Robertson Trust (RT) of an ongoing project developed by the Jeely Nursery (JN) in Castlemilk Glasgow 2007 – 2010. The Robertson Trust funding has enabled the JN to initiate a radical multi faceted programme of development focussed on children living in highly adverse socioeconomic conditions who may in addition be subject to the negative effects of living in families coping with substance abuse. They represent one of the most vulnerable groups of children in contemporary society. The task ahead for the nursery staff is complex, challenging and long term, requiring a high degree of consistency and commitment to both professional and personal growth. There is no question that the challenge is understood and accepted at all levels; that commitment to the project is well established and that a high level of motivation is sustained in spite of a number of difficult circumstances occurring over the year, unrelated to the project.
