Meet the team
I am Alan Cunningham and I am the Centre Director at Busy Bees Nursery Anniesland. I have many years experience working with a variety of ages of children and have a really passion for early years education, including outdoor play such as Forest School learning. I have an interest in mindfulness and this will be reflected in the children's learning as I strongly promote children's health and well being. I also promote loose parts and risky play and take a lot of influence from Reggio-inspired learning.
I started working for Busy Bees in January 2019 and I love seeing happy children, parents and staff. I have a big interest in animals and enjoy horse riding. I love nature and regularly go camping and I enjoy spending time with my family. My qualifications are SVQ Level 3 & 4 Social Services (Children & Young People) and have undergone Autism & Down Syndrome Awareness Training.

I have an interest in music, keeping active and have a fascination with cleaning. I have a SVQ Level 2 & 3 Social Services (Children & Young People).
I have been working with Busy Bees since 2016 and I love helping the children grow and develop their personalities. I really enjoy creating stimulating environments and learning experiences. In my own time, I like to spend time with my own son, going bowling, the cinema or other physical activities. I have a BA Child Youth Studies and HNC Early Education & Childcare.
