Heidi Marshall

Nursery Manager

My name is Heidi Marshall and I am the manager at Bishops Stortford St Michaels Mead.

I have worked in childcare for 27 years and I have a foundation degree in Early years. I have worked at Busy bees for 6 years and previously, I have had a varied and wide breath of experience from managing settings to working closely with Social Workers on child protection cases. I am passionate about providing outstanding childcare, customer service and a well trained, experienced and knowledgeable staff team that have a strong partnership with you, as parents.

I have a daughter who is 18 years old and enjoys shopping, well what 18 year old girl doesn't! My daughter went to nursery from 4 months old and so I understand what it feels like to be a working parent. I have lived in various places around the UK and also spent two years in Cyprus, I still miss the food, 6 years on.
