At East Kilbride we believe in “Getting it Right For Every Child”.
Providing children with a safe and nurturing environment to help them achieve. This ethos is supported by our development of the local woods with the parents and community.
The children love playing and learning out doors and are developing responsible attitudes to the environment. The children celebrate their achievements and work as a group. Parents are often volunteers.
The outdoor learning ethos is supported also by our work in being an eco friendly setting, where all children in the nursery, even our babies, are involved in recycling and planting and growing.
The home from home feel of the nursery is testament to the high calibre of staff, who are dedicated and committed to the service and who always go that extra mile.
We have a parents board, who help with our fundraising events, they are always looking for new members to join them
We are very happy that our child settled well at nursery and we are pleased with the feedback from staff. So glad we chose Busy Beeâ€™s
My child has loved her time at nursery, I will not hesitate to put the new baby in when the time comes.
Children are benefiting from new resources, the new library and parents room are an added benefit
The staff and management work hard to make going to work easy for me
The garden is great especially as it includes access to the woodland
Hi my name is Isabel Dunn and I am delighted to be the manager at East Kilbride Busy Bees. I moved here from our Edinburgh Park nursery. Having been born and brought up in South Lanarkshire, I am delighted to be back to my roots.
I was delighted and very proud to be awarded Nursery Manager of the Year at NMT awards in 2014
I have worked in childcare for over 30 years and enjoy every minute of it. I have worked in a variety of settings, from small playgroups to large nurseries. I was very proud to graduate with my BA from Strathclyde University in 2012.
I am married to David, and have 2 children and 3 grandchildren, Abigail, Joshua and Samuel.
In my spare time I can be found reading my kindle or watching TV cookery shows, especially James Martin. I also love spending time with my grandchildren or having them for sleep overs.
