Links Nursery has a dedicated and professionally qualified staff team, all of whom are registered with SSSC and are PVG registered under the Disclosure Scotland scheme. All of our staff are also qualified or working towards Level 3 SVQ in Social Services (Children and Young People) at SCQF level 7 or equivalent. 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. All new staff are subject to a comprehensive induction programme.
Our onsite team is led by our Nursery Manager, Lyndsay Fleming, who has many years’ experience at manager level. Lyndsay is supported by Phyllis, who takes care of Environments and Experiences, and four experienced Room Supervisors. The nursery also has its own housekeeper.
The nursery owner and Director, Mairi McCrae, whilst not based onsite, is nonetheless available to support the management team as and when required.
