We at Lullaby Lane Nursery are delighted to announce that Early Years Practitioner Colette Cassidy (on the far right of this picture with MSP Jamie Hepburn) has been shortlisted as a finalist for Skills Development Scotland, Level 3 Modern Apprentice of the Year Award. This is a fantastic recognition of Colette's hard work, enthusiasm and passion for attachment led practice within a Early Years and Education setting.

There are 3 finalists in total for this years prestigious award with Daisy Smith of broadcaster STV and Fraser Clark of Naval Ships specialists BAE Systems completing the line up.

Colette is up against some fantastic young people to win the award, but in my eyes none can say that they have propelled their industry into the limelight the way she has, with Early Years and Education practitioners not often enough being recognised at such events.
