Notre Dame Kids Club
All of our staff are members of Disclosure Scotland’s Protecting Vulnerable Adults (PVG) Scheme and registered with the Scottish Social Services Council. We provide regular training for our staff in staff in first aid, child protection, allergy awareness, health and safety, food hygiene, EpiPen and anaphylaxis, outdoor play and more. Our senior staff undertake SVQ qualifications in Playwork and management are working towards the BA Childhood Practice degree.
The majority of our staff team either attended Notre Dame Primary or Notre Dame High, or attended the after school club at Hyndland, so they have a personal connection to the school and the club. Staff have a great rapport with the children, and they make use of their varied backgrounds and talents in arts and crafts, dance, drama, music, sports and more!
