If you meet with any problems whilst using the services at Scallywags we encourage you to bring them to the attention of the Team Leader. If you feel unable to discuss the matter with the Team Leader, or the matter remains unresolved or re-occurs, please speak to our Manager, Stacey Fenwick.

For further information please see our complaints procedure below. This is also available to view in our policy handbook located in the entrance to the Nursery.

Communication and a good working relationship with Parent’s are essential for the child to thrive.

We have a monthly Calendar of Events that is distributed to Parents. This has a comment slip at the end that gives Parents the opportunity to pass on any comments or suggestions relating to Scallywags.

Regular questionnaires are sent out to parents/children.

All comments and suggestions are useful in our on going development and are therefore willingly accepted.

The first line of communication for any parent is with their child’s key worker, who will be happy to discuss any issue regarding your child’s day with us.

If you feel the issue is more relevant to a more senior person please speak with your team leader.

The Manager is:

Nursery Manager – Stacey Fenwick

Deputy Manager – Grace Timmins and Vicky Shaw

The Owner/Registered Person is: Julia Campbell

If you feel the matter is urgent then please speak to a senior member of staff immediately, otherwise you can make an appointment with your team leader and the nursery manager. This will ensure we can give the matter our full attention and address your concerns constructively.

All complaints are taken as a serious concern and the Manager or relevant person such as the Child Protection Officer will respond within 24 hours by meeting the person or calling them.

This will be documented and then our procedures followed as to the severity of the complaint.

All complaints are recorded and kept in the office
