LINWOOD is set for a welcome jobs boost with the opening of a new family-run nursery.

Carli’s Kindergarten, which already has a successful nursery in Erskine, has opened up in the town’s Napier Street with the potential to create 30 jobs.

Provost Lorraine Cameron officially opened the facility last week when a delegation from Renfrewshire Council was given a tour of the premises. 

Gayle Millar, one of a team of three who own Carli’s Kindergarten, said the company the addition of Linwood was a major development for them.

She added: “We employ 30 in Erskine and see the Linwood nursery as creating work for a similar number.”

Gayle said there was a need to hire people with a variety of skills. 

Gayle said the firm had identified a need for nursery places in Linwood which was included in the Scottish Index for Multiple Deprivation.

She added: “We want to take pressure off families.”
