Jane Greene, St Mary’s Early Learning and Childcare Centre worker, will retire after 50 years of service.
Ms Greene started her career as an early years educator in 1969 at the Barns Street Early Education Centre, before moving on to Duntocher nursery, where she has been since 1972. She has been described as a well-respected member of the team by her colleagues and all the families within the Duntocher area.
Parents and colleagues have paid tribute to the nursery practitioner, ahead of her last day on the 26th June, who is now working with the children of the children she looked after years ago.
Margaret McDougall said to Clydebank Post: “Jane has been involved in early education for many years. I have known Jane all those years and found her to be a conscientious and hard-working person who has been dedicated to nursery education. She is also a lovely, helpful lady, and I wish her a long and happy retirement.”
Kim Berry added: “I feel like you make St Mary’s nursery: you have always been at the centre of it. Very proud to have met you in all my kiddies’ journeys.”
Louis Costello said: “Jane was my nursery teacher in St Mary’s back in 1989–1990. I absolutely loved her. She was very caring, and I remember being very happy there. I was ecstatic when my own kids started nursery 29 years later, and I learned that Jane was their teacher too. I knew they were going to love her as I did.”
