Meet the staff at Wee Rascals Too

Charmaine McRonald is our Manager of Wee Rascals Too

I started off my childcare journey after leaving school in 2002 and attending Aberdeen College. After this I took a break from childcare to work in retail through customer service, management and security. After becoming an Auntie to many nieces and nephews I decided to return to childcare and worked as a Nanny for a few years before starting a job at Summers Nursery - Victoria street, Aberdeen in 2012. I started in a maternity cover position before becoming a permanant member of staff. This lead to me being able to complete my training as a fully qualified practitioner in 2015 and subsequently becoming Assistant room leader of the 0-2 room. I was with the nursery for 10 years and in this time have completed many courses, including starting my BA Childhood Practice degree which have only improved my abilities within the nursery, leading me into the position of Assistant Manager (maternity cover) on two occasions since 2019.

In October 2022 I joined the team at Wee Rascals Too in Kintore as Manager. Which is continuing my service with the same company i started with. I am proud of the Nursery and the fantastic team we have here in Kintore. The girls are all so dedicated and enthusiastic, and together we provide a homely atmosphere for all our families. We pride ourselves on our knowledge of the Pre Birth to 3, the Curriculum for Excellence and Realising the Ambition. We continue to learn and grow as a team by keeping up to date with relevent policy's and documentation.

Charmaine's qualifications include:

  • BA Childhood practice - In progress
  • Social Services Children and Young People Level 7
