Hayley Murphy

Nursery Manager

My Name is Hayley Murphy and I am the Full time Nursery Manager here at Chorley Brooke Street. I started my career with Busy Bees back in 2007 at our Preston NHS site, and I worked throughout the nursery in all age ranges. Throughout my time there I took on roles regarding Health and Safety, Senco, Website Wizard and Behaviour Management as well as progressing to management through the senior roles before finally achieving my Full Time position of Manager which has been a dream of mine for some years.  Whilst working I have progressed through the nursery gaining qualifications and training, I have received my Level 3 Qualification in Leadership and Management and my Business Administration Level 3 through the Training Academy of Busy Bees. I am the Designated Safeguarding Lead of the nursery, and have also taken on extra training for Fire Warden, First Aider at Work and Paediatric First Aid. Childcare has been a passion of mine from an early age, and I am driven to succeed in every aspect of the business. Achieving the Outstanding Award from OFSTED this year was a huge career highlight, and we as a team hope to achieve many more awards in the near future.
