Milngavie’s Lullaby Nursery in Scottish Employment Awards final

The local MP recently visited Lullaby Lane, which has crèches in Milngavie and Bearsden, to present staff with a copy of a parliamentary motion celebrating their appointment.

Ms Callaghan said the nursery staff ‘fully deserved’ the nomination in recognition of their ‘hard work, particularly in supporting families during the pandemic’.

She added that the nursery also “deserves a lot of credit for taking on – and keeping – young apprentices”.

Both Lullaby Lane nurseries have remained open throughout the pandemic. This has led to a demand for additional staff who have been recruited through the Kickstart program – an initiative that provides funds to create new jobs for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long-term unemployment .

This commitment to young apprentices has led to the incubator being nominated for the Scottish Apprenticeship Awards, set up to recognize the resilience and hard work of entry-level, modern and graduate apprentices and to shine a spotlight on employers, providers and people who support learning.

The winners of the Scottish Apprenticeship Awards 2022 will be announced during Scottish Apprenticeship Week, 7-11 March 2022, with Lullaby Lane Nurseries facing competition in the SME category from AES Solar and Pointer Ltd based at Forres in Glasgow.

Ms Callaghan said: “Being shortlisted for this award is a tremendous achievement for Lullaby Lane Nurseries, and a testament to the hard work of all the staff.

“When I passed last week I was really impressed with the management structure at Lullaby Lane which makes the nursery an attractive place to work for young apprentices. This is clearly demonstrated by the number of people staying after the end of their apprenticeship.

“Lullaby Lane is a fantastic local business that plays such an important role in the lives of the families that depend on it. I wish them the best of luck for the final of the Awards.
