Zoe Kirkpatrick - Centre Director

Zoe Kirkpatrick

Centre Director

Hello, my name is Zoe and I am the Centre Director here at Busy Bees Bedford Elstow.

I started my journey with Busy Bees in May 2017 working my way up from a Room Manager to Centre Director. I have completed a BA (Hons) in Early Years Studies and i am Qualified Level 5 in Management.

I am a very creative person and enjoy being involved in creative activities with the children, allowing them to embrace their curiosity and challenge their own ideas. 

I am committed to providing a safe and engaging environment that supports and develops each child's individual needs, working in partnership with all of my families to ensure their children have the best start in life.

I look forward to meeting you all and welcoming you to our Busy Bees Family here at Bedford Elstow.
