all of our staff are registered with the Scottish Social Services Council, so you can be assured that your children are being looked after by skilled, trusted and confident workers.
Carla Gallon - Manager
Carla has worked part-time at the Club since 2014, working during term time and holidays. Carla has an HNC in Childcare and Education, an SVQ IV in Children's Care Learning and Development, a BA (Hons) Degree in Childhood Practice, and most recently has completed a PGCE (Merit) Primary Education through the University of Dundee and UHI. Carla also works with the Local Authority as the Childcare Manager for Sutherland area.
Martin MacKenzie - Playworker
Martin works Mondays and Wednesdays at the Club during term-time and various shifts throughout the Puddle Jumpers holiday programme. Martin joined the team at the beginning of 2016. He has completed his SVQ III in Social Care (Children and Young People). Martin has been working with children in both educational and out-of-school care for about four and a half years now, and so brings valuable experience and knowledge to the Club. He very much enjoys seeing what interests children, what inspires and motivates them to learn and develop, and how they view the world. His favourite part of working at Allsorts is the fact that he gets to have fun while he works.
Jade Buchanan - Playworker
Jade works Monday to Thursday term-time and various shifts throughout the Puddle Jumpers holiday programme. Jade joined the team at the beginning of 2016. Jade has completed an apprenticeship to gain her SVQ III in Social Care (Children and Young People). Jade has been an asset to the Club and has blossomed in confidence over these past few years. She has formed positive and trusting relationships with other staff, professionals, children and their families; a vital quality, that supports our ethos and aims as a Club.
Lynn Cairns - Playworker
Lynn joined our team in September 2018 as a relief playworker. She works during term-time and throughout holiday periods. Some of you may recognise Lynn as she also works in the school canteen. She is very enthusiastic about working with Allsorts and the children, and staff and children alike love having her work at the Club! Lynn is about to embark upon a Level III SVQ in Child Care, and we wish her the best of luck and will support her through her learning journey!
