Katie Maclean - Centre Director

Katie Maclean

Centre Director

Hello, I am Katie the Centre Director here at Derby Duffield.

I have been in childcare for over 15 years and have a BA Hons Early Childhood Studies Degree.  I have spent over 12 years growing and developing within Busy Bees Nurseries.  I have progressed significantly within the company due to the amount of passion and love for quality childcare I have. I first started as a Deputy Manager at our Alton Manor Centre back in 2009, progressing to Centre Director at Matlock Busy Bees and then Centre Director at Derby Duffield.

Aside from my vast professional experience I have a little girl of my own who currently attends Busy Bees Nurseries. I am very proud of my passionate team and am supported by my Assistant Kemma Bestwick who has so far completed over 13 years’ service at Busy Bees.  Kemma steps up as Centre Director 2 days per week opposite the 3 days per week I work.
