DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!!
  1 / 10
Am reviewing as a point to warn other parents in Dunfermline thinking of placing their child into Pitreavie.

In my experience, there are far too many things that are going on here, and they should be shut down! Staff members placing unlabelled medications into fridges (serious breach of care standards) other staff members feel it is acceptable to raise their voices towards children in their care. One child I know was badly injured (sharp nail head on wood paneling) and staff didn't act in sufficient time (Miss Beverly in particular seemed to be ineffective)

Owners seem indifferent towards parental concerns raised to them; Mr. Stephenson (owner) in particular can be abrasive. I heard through several channels that he was told by the Care Commission that they would not speak to him over the telephone due to his abusive language towards them.

Not a particularly stimulating environment either - older toys etc. Other parents who are pleased with the 'care' that they have been receiving must have low standards - I would not put my other two children in Pitreavie.

AVOID - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

By far simply the best private nursery in Dunfermline if not Fife!!
My two children have gone through Pitreavie Kindergarten from a very early age infact my youngest child started when only 6 months old. I have to say that my husband and I were very happy with the standard of care and attention given to both kids. Although alot of the staff are young this by no means takes anything away from their abilities or their attitude. We are the people who leave our children in the hands of others and believe me that is not an easy choice to make but knowing that they are being cared for and are having fun makes things much easier. Every morning the children are greeted with a hello hello and are made to feel welcome the minute they walk through the door. It makes me feel very blue these slurs that have been written! We are going for three in a row and hence why I was looking at the reviews ! I can not believe that the standards of care would drop like what is being said! No I have made my decision my third child will follow in the footsteps of her brothers!

most wonderful nursery
  10 / 10
i was really sad to see such horrid reports about the nursery, these are obvously by someone holding a grudge, ive been going back and and forth to pitreavie with my kids for the last 10 years and iam allways impressed by everyone there and all the fantastic things that they do with the children. i have never in ten years had a complaint against the nursery in fact i was told about the nursery by my friend 12 years ago and she still cant believe that the same staff who looked after her twins 12 years ago are still there looking after my children.
go along and visit the nursery if you want a childcare facility that offers excellent service, dont read these horrid lies, in fact read the care commision and HMie inspections they will speak for themselves. if i were any of the ladies named in the posts i would be taking action.
i actually work near the nursery and i hear laughter all day from the nursery children playing outside i go to work on a daily basis knowing my children are cared for, in fact as an additional note my eldest child's school teacher put her child in pitreavie after visiting there on a school transition visit and was impressed by what she saw and heard. since then more teachers from the school have put their children into pitreavie.

Dirty, no value for money
Dirty rooms, rude staff and Tesco value food. Had to remove my child from here as he was not having his nappy changed as frequently as he should leading to nappy rash (despite repeated requests by me) I heard staff yelling at children on two occasions, leading me to complain. Terrible service, staff not interested in children, and children often left to entertain themselves.
