Meet the Team

Clare Ford

Nursery Manager

Hello, my name is Clare Ford and I am the Senior Nursery Manager here at Busy Bees Day Nursery, Chelmsford.

I have worked in the childcare industry for over twenty years and have a wealth of knowledge and experience across the ages birth to five years. I also completed a BA in Early Years and went on to achieve Early Years Teacher Status. Combining these elements, enables me to lead and  deliver outstanding childcare and education within the setting, making sure that children are at the forefront of everything that we do here. 

As a parent myself, I fully appreciate the needs of our parents and am proud to say that at Busy Bees Chelmsford we provide a service for the entire family, not just the children. My passion for delivering the very best outcomes for children can be seen throughout the nursery from the professional staff team and the exceptional care that they deliver through to the joy and delight seen on the faces of the children who attend.

I very much look forward to meeting you and your family.
