Centre Director

Tina Koomson -Akinola

Centre Director

My Name is Tina Koomson Akinola and I’m so delighted to have been given the opportunity to join Busy Bees. I have been working in childcare for over 13 years. In 2015, I obtained my BA hones in Early Childhood Studies.
I have always believed that all children irrespective of their background should be given an equal opportunity to develop so as to reach their required developmental milestone. This would be achieved with close relationship with the staff member. I strongly believe in listening and working closely with parents. Parents have the ultimate knowledge about their children.
My main vision would be to work in collaboration as a team with staff members parent and external agency to provide a perpetual and excellent quality childcare services ensuring that all parents are highly satisfied with our services.
I look forward to meeting all the parents.
