A nursery has been ordered to make urgent improvements in the quality of care and learning for children.

The Care Inspectorate has served a formal Improvement Notice on Angels Day Nursery in Paisley following an inspection which raised concerns.

The notice lists six areas for urgent improvement including staffing levels, staff training and management practice.

The notice says staff must demonstrate to the Care Inspectorate that a system is in place to monitor the standard of care and learning and a record of areas identified for development and improvements made must be maintained.

Staff have also been told to show that each child has a written plan setting out how their health, welfare and safety needs will be met.

Inspectors also said staff must show they know what action must be taken when an accident or incident occurs in the nursery and that procedures must detail the steps to be taken when medication is given to a child.

A spokesman for the Care Inspectorate said: “The Improvement Notice we have issued clearly lays out the improvements we must see so that the care experienced by children improves quickly.

“We will visit this nursery again soon to check on progress and if we are not satisfied that the matters raised are being addressed urgently we will not hesitate to take further action.

“Every child in Scotland has the right to safe, compassionate care which meets their needs and respects their rights.

“Anyone with a concern can contact our helpline on 0345 600 9527.”
