Jodie Cherry - Centre Director

Jodie Cherry

Centre Director

Hello my name is Jodie cherry. 

I have worked for Busy Bees since 2001. I qualified with an NNEB in 1991, and wanted to expand my knowledge so i undertook a BA HONS in Childcare and Education in 2015. 

I am married to Dean and have two beautiful children, Maisy 17, Lily 14, both girls enjoyed their nursery life, and i feel this gave them the best start in life, enabling them to succeed well in their future. 

I am passionate in my role as Centre Director to ensure the children receive the best care and education, by exploring amazing opportunities, and experiences. 

I look forward to welcoming you and your family to our nursery.
