Hello, my name is Vicky Pyne and I am the Centre Director here at Busy Bees at Ragstone House, Maidstone.
I first came to Ragstone House in March 2001, where I joined as nursery assistant helping out qualified staff throughout the day. I was then offered training by the company. I now have a level 3 NVQ in Childcare and a BTEC level 3 in Leadership and Management. As years went on i have progressed through the setting form practitioner to room leader, senior staff member, assistant manager and back in 2017 I became centre director.
As well as having the role of centre director, I’m also the nursery SEND coordinator, Health and safety officer. With both these roles I work alongside inside and outside agencies.
Being at Ragstone House for such a long time I’ve seen so many children pass through our doors and move onto to their next adventure in life, I feel humbled that myself and my team have played a part in that.
I see my centre as a family, a home from home that enables children to grow and develop in an environment that enriches the mind and is full of love.
