Amy Redfern - Centre Director

Amy Redfern

Centre Director

Hello, I am Amy and I am the Centre Director here at Busy Bees Headingley.

I started working for Busy Bees in 2018 as Assistant Centre Director and got promoted to Centre Director in July 2019, I started to work at Busy Bees Headingley in October 2023. I have had many years of experience across the sector and started to volunteer whilst I was completing my qualification at university (BA HONS Education Studies specialising in early years). Whilst working in nurseries i also completed my NVQ management level 4. 

I believe all children should get the best start in life and I am proud to be able to promote that as a centre director. I pride myself on being friendly and approachable to all children, staff and parents/carers. Seeing the children meet their milestones is very rewarding for me and my team to see.

I look forward to welcoming new families to our exemplary day care in Leeds.
