“Both Rona and the minister were extremely generous with their time during the visit to talk to individual members of our team to discuss their experience and their career plans for the future.”
Ms Mackay, Strathkelvin and Bearsden’s MSP, said: “Children are at the front and centre of my agenda as an MSP, so I was absolutely delighted to visit Lullaby Lane Nursery in Bearsden to meet its staff. I want to thank director Pauline Scott and manager Sarah Jane for having us along — I was thoroughly impressed.”
Mr McDonald, Scottish Government minister, said: “For only being open three years, Lullaby Lane Nursery has certainly made some significant achievements in a particularly competitive field. As the Minister for Childcare and Early Years, it was great to meet the staff and hear about what they’re doing that makes this award-winning practice so special.”
