A GLASGOW nursery has been ordered to tighten safety procedures after a three-year-old girl was found wandering close to a motorway.
The Care Inspectorate has issued a series of recommendations following the incident at the Partnership Nursery in Cowglen.
As reported in the Evening Times last week, police and social services were alerted after the girl was found next to the M77. She had walked out through an open gate and crossed a main road.
When she was returned by a parent who was leaving the nursery, staff did not know she was missing.
One senior worker was sacked and another resigned following the incident, which happened on May 28.
Glasgow City Council said it would not be funding any more places after the end of the summer term.
The Care Inspectorate has made a series of recommendations focussing on health and safety requirements and risk assessments, which it said had been acted on by the nursery.
The nursery has put a new management structure in place and has tightened security procedures.
It is understood the child is still attending the nursery.
It followed an incident last year at the nursery where a two-year-old was burned during a cookery lesson.
A Care Inspectorate spokeswoman said: "We have been notified of both incidents by Partnership Nursery through the correct procedures.
"Recommendations focusing on health and safety requirements and risk assessments were given and acted upon by the service.
"The Care Inspectorate is working closely with the service to ensure it is providing quality care that meets the needs of the individuals.
"A recent inspection of the service was made and the report will be available in due course."
