Nursery Agenda Scotland once again was held at the Hilton Glasgow on 31st August 2018!
The very last day of summer saw 25 nurseries from across Scotland enjoying a well-earned respite from the pressures of work. Nurseries attended the annual Nursery Agenda Scotland to take advantage of the speed-dating sessions with providers, networking opportunities and Hot Topics session – not to mention all free for providers!
A big topic in the Hot Topics sessions was the massive expansion of the ‘free’ places for all three and four year old children and eligible 2 year olds – a doubling of provision to 1140 hours. All this by 2020. Not surprising that the tone of the discussion ranged from infuriated to resigned. Ever practical, attendees discussed the three challenges for nurseries this year: staff wages, recruiting and retaining staff and making a profit. The final consensus was that there was even more of a need for effective communication: with their SMP’s, local councils and each other.
