Happy World Book Day

It is lovely to see all our nursery children dressed up as different book characters today.

We have been reading some of their favourite books from home which all of the children are enjoying.

Reading is vital to the growth of a child’s imagination and such an important part of growing up.

Let us all spend some time appreciating our most loved books today and encourage our children to do them same.

Exciting Announcement

We are excited to announce that Maureen Crandles, our owner and director, will be taking part in a feature on Friday morning on BBC Radio Scotland.

Maureen will be talking to the host on gender stereotypes and how we combat them in our nurseries.

Tune in at 11.10am, it is sure to be a great discussion!

Can You Cook Up A Storm?

We are an award winning nursery group, who pride ourselves on the quality of our staff and the childcare we provide. Ensuring that every child is nurtured and nourished by the food we provide is key to this.  Our menus incorporate both traditional and innovative dishes, and champion the relationship between a healthy diet and a healthy lifestyle. This is an 8 month temporary post and either full or part time hours are available.

As a cook with us you will be responsible for ensuring that the food we provide is age appropriate and inclusive of cultural, personal and medical needs. In addition to preparing meals, you will be responsible for stock management (ordering and stock rotation) and for ensuring that health and safety standards in the kitchen are maintained. You will work alongside a dedicated team of teachers and practitioners and will have close interaction with the children therefore the ability to communicate well with both children and adults is important.

You will enjoy a competitive salary, attractive weekday hours, over 6 weeks holiday a year (pro rated) and on-going support and career development from our dedicated team of managers and our on-site nutritionist.
