In addition to our staff being qualified and experienced in their jobs, we have strong links with East Lothian Council’s Support Teachers for Partnership Centres, who work collaboratively with our staff and children in Pre-School. This has allowed us to set our benchmark very high, as we fully believe in ensuring your child receives the best learning and development opportunities that we can provide.

In order to maintain this high level of quality, childcare standards and performance are continually monitored, with all staff having the opportunity to participate in continual professional development and training throughout the year. Regular team meetings and in-house training are used by us to further promote a feeling of team spirit, which we believe encourages staff to feel proud of the important role they play in your child’s development.
