Pam Edwards

Nursery Manager

On a personal note,

I am a mum of 3 children with 5 grandchildren. My husband and I love family days out and Liverpool F.C and we all live in North Wales.

Professionally I have worked in childcare for over 40 years across various sectors, maintained charity and several PVI settings. I have had various roles during that time  and have worked as a manager over the  last 10.

I originally trained as a N.N.E..B updating my skills by completing NVQ level 4 followed closely by a Foundation Degree, then a BA with Honours in Early Years Leadership in 2014. I have also completed a Level 3 in Preparing to Teach in Lifelong Learning Sector.

I am looking forward to returning to work with Busy Bees and getting to know you all.
