Kerry Sharples - Centre Director

Kerry Sharples

Centre Director

Hello, my name is Kerry Sharples and I am the Centre Director here at Busy Bees Preston NHS day nursery. 

I am an experienced Centre Director who is passionate about ensuring every child receives high quality care. I have a BA Hons in Early Childhood studies and a Level five qualification in Operations Management and believe in the need of continually developing my own knowledge. I previously had the pleasure of supporting four Busy Bees centres amongst the ten nurseries that I have managed in my over twenty years career in Early Years Education.

In my spare time I care for my family including my wonderful grandson and dogs.

I look forward to showing you around and welcoming you to our outstanding nursery in Preston.
