Meet the Teachers


We are very lucky to have such a great team of dedicated and highly qualified teachers at Duchal.  They each bring their own personal attributes to all our activities and they really make our nursery a very special place.

Here's a little bit of background information on our wonderful teachers!

Mrs Ormond is a highly experienced and qualified childcare professional, having over thirty years experience of working in a wide variety of roles in the field of early education. She also has significant management experience, having most recently managed 21 early years centres within West Dunbartonshire council.
