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 me pamela@balgillonursery.co.uk. I hope to meet you all soon."
