Meet the team
Hi my name is Kaysha and I am the Nursery Manager here at Belper Gibfield Lane.
I have worked for Busy Bees since 2013, joining here as Nursery Manager in July 2017 and since then I haven't looked back! I thoroughly enjoy each and every day of my career, from making memories for each child to developing my staff's knowledge. One of my most precious highlights from managing our nursery was our Outstanding from OFSTED in June 2018.
I am a mum myself and have two children. My son who now attends school attended nursery from the age of 5 months and my daughter who now comes to nursery in the baby room.
I know how daunting it can be to take that step at looking into childcare and thinking about entrusting your most treasured possession into the hands of someone else. I hope that when you come and visit and meet myself and my fantastic staff team all of your worries and concerns will disappear as we answer any queries you may have for your child starting with us. I am so very lucky to have a team that always aim to deliver the highest possible level of childcare and always with a smile.
I have an absolute passion to ensure all children are able to access the best possible start in life and to provide them with the outstanding start in life that they all deserve.
We welcome you on that journey with your child and look forward to meeting you and your family.
