Hello, my name is Rebecca and I manage the nursery Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. My Assistant Manager, Kimberley, steps up to Manager on a Monday and Tuesday. I have been a Manager with Busy Bees since 2006 and hold a level 4 qualification in Early Years and a degree in Business Management. Before I was manager at Guiseley, I worked at our Leeds Colton Mill Busy Bees as a Business Manager for 7 years. I am the Designated Safeguarding Lead for the setting, a Paediatric First Aider and First Aider at Work and have other professional training such as in SEND work, Safeguarding Children and Catering-related training such as Food Hygiene.
I have always been passionate about my job. There is nothing more rewarding for me than seeing young children learn, grow and achieve and develop their own little personalities. I like to ensure that this is at the forefront of what I do and that this passion can be embedded into the strong staff team that we have here at Guiseley. Together, we ensure that the children are highly cared for and given a high quality variety of learning opportunities every day.
I also believe in strong parent partnerships to ensure the best outcomes for our little ones both at home and at nursery.
I have two children of my own; a 7 year old girl, now in year two at Primary School (who used to attend here) and a toddler boy, who currently attends this nursery.
Kim and I work well as a team to ensure the best possible care and outcomes for all the children here at Guiseley.
