In the nursery, there is nothing more important than being able to trust the person looking after your child. That is why Wellside Kindergarten only recruits staff who are going to create and maintain a fantastic relationship with you and with your child. All of our staff are engaged on the basis that they are well qualified, have natural talent and bring something unique to Wellside. We pride ourselves on the fact that many of the staff at Wellside have worked with us for 15 to 26 years.
Susan Hill, Managing Director, has a degree in Childhood Practice and Janelle Brown, Manager has achieved SVQ level 4 in Childcare and Education. All the childcare staff at Wellside Kindergarten are qualified to HNC in Childcare and Education or equivalent level.
All staff are registered with the Scottish Social Services Council and all staff have a PVG check.

Each child is allocated a keyworker who has a particular responsibility for settling in and recording progress and development. The keyworker monitors each child’s progress, maintains developmental files and plans for the child’s individual needs. Keyworkers work very closely with parents from the very first contact until the child leaves to go to school, this helps to ensure that the care the child receives at Nursery is consistent with approaches used at home.
However, please note that the keyworker does not have sole charge of your child throughout the day and at times they will not be the person giving you feedback at the end of the day. All staff within the playroom will know your child’s individual needs to ensure continuity of care when staff are on holiday or sick. At any time you are welcome to make an appointment with your child’s keyworker to discuss progress and development or any concerns that you may have. Parental participation is a successful way for parents to become actively involved in the life of the nursery.
