Linda Smith

Nursery Manager

My name is Linda and I have worked for Busy Bees since we opened in 2005. I completed the NNEB in 1972 and completed a BA Honors in Early Years in 2013. I have  worked with children with disabilities and in a Special Care Baby Unit, before having my own 4 wonderful children. In 2006 I was fortunate enough to be promoted to Manager of Busy Bees.

I have a fantastic team, some of whom have also been here since we opened. I am truly committed to my role and am very proud of the nursery. The staff share my passion and commitment to providing quality childcare, recognising every child as being unique and every child as being an individual.

Being a mum myself, I recognise the anxieties experienced by parents when they leave their most treasured possessions in our care. The staff here are very caring and work well together to promote a great parent partnership.

Becky
Financial Administrator

My name is Becky. When I left school I went to College to study Level 3 in Childcare and went on to be a Full time Nanny. I had a career change in 1998 which led me into the Finance Sector. I then married and had 3 girls. I started to work for Busy Bees as the Financial Administrator in 2010. This Job works well for me as I get to interact with the Children, and also work with Numbers and Figures.
