Our team

The Village Nursery has been providing high quality child care for 18 years. Staff turnover is extremely low resulting in a well trained and very experienced group of people who know how to relate to children and love working with them.

The structure of the Village Nursery currently consists of:

Management Team: Caroline Dunmur and Pauline MacFarlane

13 Nursery Practitioners

3 Support Workers

And a small number of experiencered Supply Workers


Staff are encouraged and supported to develop their skills through further training and qualifications and regular in-service training is undertaken. Great care is taken to recruit staff with relevant qualifications and experience. All staff are PVG checked and where relevant registered with the Scottish Social Services Council (
