We believe in treating all children as individuals and letting them have their own voice – so they can express themselves, self-select independently and follow their own learning journey while at Leicester Meridian.
Each day our nursery provides fresh home cooked meals and snacks. We cater for children with dietary requirements due to religion, allergy related or vegetarian. We continue to hold the maximum 5 star certificate rating for food hygiene issued by environmental health in December 2011. Recently we acquired our bronze award from the Soil association.

My name is Michaela and I have been the nursery manager at Leicester Meridian since the nursery opened in November 2001.
I have a son of my own who enjoyed his time at Busy Bees before going on to school.
I qualified in 1989 gaining my NNEB certificate in childcare and I continued to study, I am a qualified teacher in adult education and have lectured in childcare for NVQ level 2 & 3 at Leicester college.
I am also the safeguarding officer for Leicester Meridian and have my level 2 A & B award in Safeguarding for children and young people. As well as this I am the health & safety co-ordinator for the nursery and I have just achieved my first aid at work qualification for children and adults.
In my spare time I love walking, gardening and spending time with my family.
