Natasha Neal

Nursery Manager

Hi, my name is Natasha and I am the manager at Busy Bees Chelmsford. I have just come back from maternity leave after having my baby girl Arabella in May 2016. My partner is called Mark and we have a cat called Spongebob and a dog called Harry.

I have a BA Honours in Education and Professional Practice and I have worked for Busy Bees since 2002.  I started as a relief member of staff and have worked my way up through the nursery from Room Manager to Assistant Manager and now Nursery Manager.  Having been here for such a long time, Chelmsford nursery is my second home and close to my heart, I love seeing the dedication my staff have to children and parents in the nursery and seeing children thrive in our outstanding nursery.

My vision is to create a stimulating and welcoming environment, where children and parents work together with the staff to achieve a common goal of raising children who are confident, enthusiastic and life long learners.

I look forward to working with you and your family.
