Links Nursery has a dedicated and professionally qualified staff team. Leading the team is our manager, Debbie Rendall, who has many years nursery experience. Debbie also holds an SVQ level 3 in Children’s Care, Development and Learning and will shortly begin working towards her Professional Development Award in Childcare. She has a small team of qualified nursery practitioners, all of whom hold an HNC or SVQ level 3 in Children’s Care, Development and Learning or equivalent, and two modern apprentices who are training to become qualified. All staff are registered with the SSSC and are PVG registered under the Disclosure Scotland scheme. All staff have completed child protection training and first aid for children, and are required to undertake training in the form of continual professional development. In addition all new staff are subject to a comprehensive induction programme.
The nursery owner Director, Mairi McCrae, whilst not based onsite, is nonetheless available to support the management team when required, and has many years’ experience running nurseries across Scotland.
