Lochside top of the town

LOCHSIDE Playgroup in Linlithgow has once again come out top in the town for its standard of childcare.

The Care Inspectorate, formerly known as the Care Commission, assesses the quality of care and support, the environment, staffing, management and leadership, and, so far, Lochside say they are the only playgroup to have gained a five, very good, across all categories for the past few years.

Playgroup manager Heather Stewart said: “We are delighted Lochside has once again been confirmed as a five star pre-school service.

‘’We’ve worked very hard over the last year to ensure our move to new premises in the Low Port Centre did not compromise our high quality of care.

‘‘To be acknowledged as being as strong as ever is gratifying and we will continue to strive to give the very best to our children in the future.”
