The team

Knockando Playgroup employs a team of three who are involved in the day-to- day running of the Playgroup setting. All of the staff have been vetted by Disclosure Scotland and hold a current First Aid certificate. They also receive regular training updates and attend courses on child development.

Our team are very highly thought of by the children and parents alike and many children come back to visit long after they have moved on from the Playgroup.

Policy documents are also regularly reviewed and revised where necessary ensuring that we can proved the best care for the children and that we continue to maintain and environment which allows them to learn and develop confidence.
