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
I am thrilled with the service, the staff are kind caring and knowledgeable
My son is gaining confidence through his time at nursery
The garden is great especially as it includes access to the woodland
The meals are varied, well balanced and freshly made, my son always eats well
The nursery looks great since the refurbishment, very bright and spatious, all staff are lovely and very welcoming
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.
