Sunflower Nursery

Martin Docherty MP visited Sunflower Nursery last week to see the excellent service being delivered to the people of Clydebank.


The nursery, opened more than 12 years ago, has seen consistently high inspection grades from the Care Inspectorate but there are no signs of this excellent facility resting on their laurels.


Owned and run by Lisa Girasoli and Anne Latimer, both qualified nursery nurses and directors of Sunflower with over 25 years’ experience in childcare and education, the nursery is constantly working with parents and their highly professional staff to improve outcomes for the children especially when it comes to the transition to Primary Education.


As one of the Council’s ‘Partnership Nurseries’ they are a key provider of early years education in the area and are able to access funding to ensure that their staff have best, most up to date training.


Martin said,


“The energy and enthusiasm everyone has is immediately apparent and it’s clear that a ‘community’ ethos is behind their success. I was delighted to have the chance to meet the staff, parents and children and I was very impressed, not only with their results on paper, but to see how that has translated into a fantastic experience for the children.”
