Care Inspectorate

The Care Inspectorate are the governing body employed by the Scottish Government to inspect all care services, including all child care providers.

Care Inspectorate Report - November 2018

KingsWellies Nursery was inspected during a two week period in November 2018 by the Care Inspectorate. This is our SECOND care inspection since opening in April 2015. We are absolutely delighted to attach our report for your information. We were awarded Grade 5 (Very Good) in ALL categories of the inspection. In addition, we have NO requirements, NO recommendations and NO action plan to complete from the Care Inspectorate. We have shown great improvements since our first inspection in May 2016.  We are thrilled! 

Please be rest assured however that we will NOT become complacent. We will NOT sit on our laurels. We will continue to improve and to provide the VERY BEST service possible. We aim to achieve Grade 6 (Excellent) in all future inspections and to stand out as a sector leading nursery. We will continue to aim for excellence throughout all that we do. We are a TEAM and could not do it without ALL of our stakeholders who are so very important to us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Look what our parents said about us to the Care Inspectorate - May 2016.

“Kerry and the team go above and beyond the call of duty to give the children the best possible experiences they can whilst at nursery. We really feel part of the KingsWellies family.”

“A lovely stimulating nursery. I can confidently leave my child and know that she is going to have a fun filled day full of learning. Manager, Kerry is always available and happy to discuss any queries.”

“We have used a number of nurseries due to relocation and we could not be happier with this one. Our child is thriving. The manager is ambitious, driven, hardworking, caring, approachable and friendly.”

“Our child is always so happy to go into nursery. It is a pleasure to see her so happy and it makes it so easy for us to leave her there as we know she will be happy and very well looked after. All the staff in the nursery know her name and that we are her parents.”

“KingsWellies provides an educational, fun filled learning environment, where staff know the children and understand each child’s individual needs. The atmosphere is family-like and the children are encouraged to progress. The staff have a wide range of skills and interests which they share. I feel secure knowing my child’s best interest will be considered.”

“Fantastic facilities with highly motivated and enthusiastic staff. Great outdoor space.”

“The quality of care and range of activities and foods are brilliant and I’m very happy with the care and service they provide.”

 “This is one of the friendliest nurseries I have been in. we are always welcomed and acknowledged. Credit to Kerry and her staff team.”

“I do not have a single negative thing to say about the nursery. My child loves going. The staff are lovely, friendly and enthusiastic. The owner knows every child and makes every effort to speak to children/parents when she sees them.”

“We regularly receive newsletters and emails with updates and news of what’s happening in the nursery and really appreciate what the manager and her team are trying to achieve for the children of KingsWellies.”
