Meet the Team

Nursery Manager

My Name is Karen Fowler and I started my post as nursery manager at Busy Bees Glasgow Kelvin on 28.07.14. I have been managing nurseries for over thirteen years and I have worked in partnership with various authorities. This year (2014) I was part of the organising committee that organised the Early Years Conference for the City of Edinburgh. I currently hold a B.A. in Childhood Studies which I gained at the University of Glasgow.

I believe that every individual child should be supported to reach their full potential and I feel the best way of achieving this is by working in partnership with parents, staff, other professionals and agencies.

I have various interests but mostly I enjoy walking, swimming, dancing and socialising with my friends and family. I have been involved in a foundation for children charity and I have walked the West Highland Way and climbed Ben Nevis to raise funds for this charity.

I have one daughter and I am a proud grandmother to two beautiful little boys.
