Meet the team

The staff team working within the nurseries are a diverse team of professionals who bring a wealth of experience, qualifications and knowledge. 100% of our staff are already trained or are training towards formal childcare qualifications including Higher National Certificate, Professional Development Awards and Degree level.

A quarter of our staff team also exceeds the recommended qualification level by actively undertaking further accredited training up to degree level.


Balgillo Nursery Too Staff

Registered Manager and Director at Balgillo Nurseries

“I qualified in 1997 from Dundee College as a nursery nurse and since then I have worked within a range of settings. I feel that I have the most experience and knowledge of the private sector, where I have worked at all levels, including manager. Before working for myself at Balgillo Nursery my most recent employed post was within the Education Department of Dundee City Council where I worked closely with the voluntary sector.

 
Professional development is very important to me and I have continued to study since first qualifying and achieved a Bachelors degree in Childhood Practice with Dundee University in the summer of 2014. I am fully registered with the Care Commission and Scottish Social Services Council. 

 

I hope that you find the information about the nursery and staff team interesting and informative. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact myself or the team.  I hope to meet you all soon."

Nursery Manager at Balgillo Nursery Too

I qualified with an HNC in Early Education and Childcare in 2010 and have worked mainly within the Private Sector. I started working at Balgillo Nursery in October 2013. I am currently enrolled and am undertaking the BA in Childhood Practice at Dundee University. 

Since starting the nursery I had been worked across all age ranges and have loved my experience so far. I am now working within the Pre school aged children but I am fully committed to providing the best experiences for all of the children.

I look forward to meeting any new parents and children as they start and supporting them throughout their transition to nursery.

 I have recently completed my SVQ level 4 qualification through distance learning and have extended my role from EYP to Deputy Manager and now Nursery Manager. My main role is to support the smooth day to day running of the nursery as well as mentor the team to ensure good outcomes for children.
