Frequently Asked Questions


Can staff babysit?
In the interest of maintaining a professional relationship, staff are not permitted to babysit.

Do you go on trips?
Trips and outings are an integral part of the nursery routine. Resources within the local community are used regularly and outings further afield are organised as appropriate. We welcome parent helpers on all our trips.

Does the nursery ever close?
Any emergency closure, e.g. severe weather, heating failure, will be made at the discretion of the manager.

Do you work with External Agencies?
The nursery works closely with various external bodies, which provide guidance and support when required as well as inspect and evaluate our practice on a regular basis. We adhere closely to the guidelines and requirements set by these agencies and endeavour to keep parents informed of all feedback in which we receive. These external bodies are:
  • SCSWIS (Social Care and Social Work Improvement Scotland) / Care Inspectorate
  • Health and Safety Executive
  • NDNA 
  • Scottish Social Services Council
  • Food Standards Agency
