Oranges and Lemons Private Day Care Nurseries were founded in 1998 when our first nursery in Clement Park opened. Due to the success of this nursery, Oranges and Lemons have since gone from strength to strength. We are now the leading group in Tayside with five nurseries in and around Dundee.
All our nurseries are managed by a fully qualified and experienced Lead Practitioner who is supported by a Deputy Lead Practitioner. The Management teams and their staff are all dedicated to the quality of care and provision for the children, undertaking additional training to extend on and improve their qualifications. The staff teams consist of full time and part time Early Years Practitioners, Assistant Practitioners and Support Workers (including cooks and cleaners). All Assistant Practitioners are working towards either SVQ level 2 or level 3 in Childcare or Education.
Our Lead Practitioners and Deputy Lead Practitioners run the day to day care of the nurseries and have the support of the Area Manager and Directors of the company, who are also involved on a daily basis.
Each of our nurseries have their own individual qualities while they are all based on the same principles – a safe, stimulating and secure environment for our children to play, learn and develop.
All Oranges and Lemons Nurseries are registered with Dundee City Council and SCSWIS. Lead Practitioners and staff work closely with SCSWIS and always welcome them into our nurseries.
