Why You Will Love Our Nursery

Busy Bees at Monifieth is a well established nursery that nurtures and educates children from the age of 6 weeks to 5 years old. Throughout the years that the nursery have been in David Lloyd Leisure, the staff group has grown together, with many of us being here for over 10 years. The nursery has a homely yet stimulating environment, with pale colours to ensure that the children work is the focal point of any displays.

We have soft and wooden furnishing throughout the whole nursery that compliments the Reggio approach that is concentrate on in pre-school but filters through to our under 3's department.

Many of the staff have additional training that compliments the qualifications that they all already have, including PDA's in childcare and education and a BA in childhood practices. This enhances the knowledge of the staff which supports the children's learning and developments to ensure that they are getting the best start in life.

We are proud to support:

Meet the Team

Emma Rollo - Nursery Manager

Nursery Manager

My name is Emma Rollo and I have worked in childcare for 15 years. I have been part of the Meadows team for 8 years and have recently become Manager.  I enjoy the daily challenges of being in a children’s nursery and enjoy spending time within the rooms with the children.

I am currently undertaking my PDA in Childhood practice at the local college and once completed I am keen to go onto to study for my BA in Childhood practice at Dundee University.

Within Meadows we have a great team of practitioners providing fun and exciting learning opportunities for all children while providing a safe and stimulating environment.

In my spare time I love to bake and decorate cakes, and enjoy arts and crafts.

Parent Partnership Group

Parent Representatives for Busy Bees at Monifieth


Jim

My name is Jim and my daughter has just moved from toddlers into Pre School. I joined the parent partnership group because I wanted to find out more about what was happening within the nursery and to find out and share the views of the other parents within the nursery.

"My daughter has been in the nursery since she was 9 months and she thoroughly enjoys it. We feel that all the staff interact with the children and she has no problems progressing between rooms."

Michelle

I have been a parent at the nursery since December 2013 when my daughter Abigail joined at 5 months old following my return to full time employment after maternity leave. As a business director for a local technical textile manufacturer, finding a childcare provider that could support my needs and that of my child was essential.

"Knowing my daughter is safe and being well looked afetr makes my day so much easier. Busy Bees has supported my child's development and taught her new things whilst having lots of fun."
